Tonightâ€™s show featured the song â€œToo Fakeâ€ from the band Hockey. These guys hale from Portland, Oregon, but are currently blazing through England opening for Friendly Fires. If their first single has you curious to hear more but you can not make it across the pond, they will be playing US festivals such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza this summer. Their debut album Mind Chaos won’t be out until August 25th, but â€œToo Fakeâ€ is available now on iTunes.
The album is long way from release, but I got an early listen and was a big fan of what I heard. They have a funky sound like Orson or Bloc Party. I especially liked â€œLearn to Loseâ€ and â€œPreacherâ€ where they let loose with some keyboard-infused party rock. I also hope these guys get really huge just so ill-informed people see â€œTonight: Hockeyâ€ on the sports arena marquee and show up in NHL jerseys.
