If you’ve been reading the site for a long time (like 2005 era), you know that I’ve been a HUGE fan of Toronto duo The Carps. Not only does lead singer/drummer Jahmal Tonge have the most soulful voice in North America (whom you might of heard on the MSTRKRFT album Fist Of God or from their song with The Cool Kids), but the dude combines this voice with the hard rock backing of bassist Neil White.

Catch up with The Carps by copping their previous EPs, and their latest track, It’s Raining In The Projects, But It’s Sunny In Africa shines light on a full lenghth album that will hopefully drop soon. (via JT, 1Love T.O.)
