Download: Tokyo Police Club - 10 Songs, 10 Hours, 10 Years Project
This year Canadian indie-rock band, Toyko Police Club have embarked on a project that they are calling the '10 Songs, 10 Hours, 10 Years project'. It consists of them covering 10 songs from the last 10 years. So far the band have covered ground from Moby to LCD Soundsystem and Kelly Clarkson and pretty much everywhere in between. Although none of the covers are devastatingly original they are all really enjoyable and well worth the listen

It's been a really interesting venture for TPC to take on and one that I've really enjoyed following. The series covered some of my favourite bands and songs, none of which I didn't enjoy. Great stuff by a great band.
TPC have announced that these covers will be available for digital purchase on iTunes on October 4th.
