Music You Should Know: Hockey

Just like yesterday’s selection, The Thermals, the unfortunately named Hockey (terrible name for a new wavish-band) are from Portland.  Bad name, but really interesting band.  They kind of remind of the Strokes without all the hype, but have an actual ability to write hooks.  Song Away sounds like something that could have been featured on one of my 80’s one-hit wonders, while Too Fake, Learn to Lose, and  I Am Spanish are all a part of one of the best debuts of 2009.
