We gave it an A-

Our neighbors to the North, so big lately in the indie-rock export business (see Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Wolf Parade, et al.), send yet another excellent act across the border: Ontario’s barely legal Tokyo Police Club. At 16 minutes, A Lesson in Crime offers little more than a quick, fizzy rush, but does so in beguiling style, with rangy guitar lines, a bruising rhythm section, and a singer who sounds not unlike the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas, minus the upper-class ennui. We can hardly wait for the full-length.
