Built By Snow - Mega (2009)

Built By Snow use keyboards and programming to flesh out their loose power pop basis.

Japanese Cartoon?!

Have you guys heard about this? I know I'm kinda late but apparently there's this mysterious british rock band with a myspace. The mysterious part is it sounds a lot like Lupe Fiasco. this is what SmokeYYY had to say:
When you’re one of the greatest emcees of the modern generation readying your bow from hip-hop with three albums, what do you do meanwhile? In Lupe Fiasco’s case, you simply watch a film, get invigorated, start a band, begin making not so bad post-indie punk music in a faux British accent, think of a peculiar band name (cue “Japanese Cartoon”), create a MySpace page, & upload the music. Then act like it isn’t you but rather Percival Fats. Cool.
This is what Percival Fats had to say:
Percival Fats (Born Percival Hindenburg-Fats) Is NOT Lupe Fiasco (Born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco). Although he is a dear friend...Lupe does finance the band but is NOT I REPEAT NOT THE SINGER IN JAPANESE CARTOON. He is however the producer and we value his participation very much.
Personally I think it's him. but what do you think? Listen to the tracks and let me know.
