Recent Release: THE NATURAL SHOCKS – Kobayashi Maru EP

September 4, 2012

THE NATURAL SHOCKS are definitely a Toronto favourite as far as bands go here at The iM. When we found out they recently released a brand new EP, we just couldn’t wait to share it with you considering it’s a rather fine piece of work.

Check out the Kobayashi Maru (see Star Trek for more info) EP in the embed below and be prepared for a musical adventure you won’t soon forget.

We’re really digging all the tracks on this one but if you’re looking for a starting point, be sure to check out Change – it is, after all, the first song on the album.
