Recording 16 tracks in a total of roughly 13 minutes of music in bassist Roger Lima’s basement, Less Than Jake are defying convention again. Instead of offering new original material, they’re diving into the wide and fascinating world of television theme songs and commercials. Spanning from the vintage adverts of yesteryear to the frenetic promos of modern day, TV/EP reimagines a world where pop punk and ska is the music de rigueur, and this is the soundtrack to your couch potato life. You can now stream the EP in full, along with video footage of the original material the band is covering. Click below to expand this post and watch the video. No word if any copies will make it to our shores, but pre-orders are currently available via Interpunk if you want to get your hands on one.
