ltj tvepFlorida ska-punkers LESS THAN JAKE have a long history of bringing some light-hearted humor into their music, and that same attitude takes center stage on their latest release, the TV EP. Crafted in terms of “Channels” as opposed to songs, the TV EP is meant to give listeners the experience of flipping channels on television, jumping from show-to-show, complete with commercial breaks in-between with the difference being that all of these are theme songs and jingles as covered by LTJ. Though undoubtedly throwing a nod to the 80’s/early 90’s, newer fare is here as well, all delivered as if you were still checking out your favorite shows on an analog set adorned with rabbit ears on top.

If you’re looking for music with meaning, you may as well look elsewhere. If you appreciate the novelty of this conceptual release, LESS THAN JAKE’s TV EP is a fine companion piece to last year’s POWERGLOVE release SATURDAY MORNING APOCALYPSE, either of NEW FOUND GLORY’s FROM THE SCREEN TO YOUR STEREO releases, or the 1995 Compilation SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS’ GREATEST HITS.

Rating: 4/5
