Bonus MP3: The Semifinals -- "Yr Fists"

In my review of the debut EP from local rockers The Semifinals in this week's print edition of the Observer, I applauded Andrew Strickland and crew's efforts fuse cute Emo with some old-school post-punk a la Gang of Four--and the results are pretty damn cool. Here's "Yr Fists," the best song from the new EP.

The Semifinals -- "Yr Fists"

The Semifinals perform at the Prophet Bar on Saturday night and I, for one, am anxious to hear songs such as "Yr Fists" in a live setting.

Oh, and if you can't make the show, just email the band via its Myspace site; they'll send you the EP for free. Very cool.
