I don't have too many opportunities to use Japanese stateside, so I hope you won't mind my getting a little pedantic. While the band is referred to as tricot in its US marketing materials (so I used it in the title for SEO purposes), their actual name, トリコ,...

Devonshire's William Hawkins has released a sweet-and-sour set of folk punk. Really, for fans of Frank Turner, this will remind you of the guy's roots. Hawkins' puckish sense of humor informs his songs, ranging from "Donnie Trump" (guess what it's about?) t...
