After tackling LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends” yesterday, Ontario’s Tokyo Police Club moves forward in their 2000s-centric covers project with M83’s “Kim & Jessie.” First things first, we have to commend the band for taking this track on because it’s easily one of our favorites that year. You know, that can also be said for several other of their covers, particularly the aforementioned “All My Friends.”
So it’s with that in mind that we’re especially glad to hear that Tokyo Police Club did “Kim & Jessie” justice, thanks to some help from vocalist Jamie Jackson, of Hot As Sun. She helps add that dreamy punch to the track while frontman David Monks continues to display his increasingly impressive range.
