australopithecine, rekindle your heart

obscenely late to the party on tokyo police club, but it would be even more of a tragedy if i neglected them completely. after a couple brief eps, tpc signed to saddle creek and put out their debut full-length, elephant shell, in april. it's a full-length in track quantity (11), but the band maintain their quick-hitting style, with songs rarely surpassing the 2:30 mark. but 2:30 is really all that's needed for an insanely catchy, well-crafted pop song with clever lyrics to make it's mark. and has the word "australopithecine" ever been used in a song before?
