TOKYO ELECTRON: Self-titled: CD

Ryan Rousseau has an amazing knack for playing with tons of bands yet keeping them all in a different realm (The Wongs, Digital Leather, Destruction Unit, The Reatards). Tokyo Electron is the most straight of them all and it’s great. Ryan splits his time between Memphis and Phoenix and this is my metaphor for the band. Pretty heavy, fuzzy guitars and drums pound ahead but stay poppy, vocals are gravelly but clear with backing vocals… maybe the vinyl master got left in the sun. Rad.
