I tried to give this LP a preliminary listen at dinner time last night, but it quickly became apparent that this kind of stridently produced indie pop is a bit too hyper-present and distracting to eat to so it didn't last long. 'Forcefield' is album number four from indie poppers Tokyo Police Club. It's a collection of pretty strong guitar pop songs with really expansive production that says I'm Not Background Music. It produces a kind of sensory disconnect sometimes because the songs can be quite subtle and thoughtfully written but the sound is all vocoders and big plastic guitars and grandiose synths.   I've been ambivalent about a few records this week and this is another of those. I really don't have much of a problem with the songs on here, a kind of mid-point between Field Music and Tom Petty that's very listenable, but the entire album is marred by this bright, glossy production, and in particular the liberally used autotune. In fairness I'm probably not its target audience, but it does make me sad to see perfectly adequate pop songs treated like this.
