Pop Music for Floozies.

From The Chicagoist:

Tyler Jon Tyler has a name that’s bound to mislead. Tyler Jon Tyler may sound like some redneck parody out of My Name Is Earl or Eastbound or Down, or perhaps a forgotten teen idol from the mid-nineties. But, in fact, TJT is a sharp, tight power-pop group from the Windy City.

Musically, TJT’s scrappy, fun but disciplined rock resembles past Midwestern acts like Green, but with attitude-fueled vocals tough enough to make Chrissie Hynde cower in a bar’s back corner. Tracks like the jangly, minute-and-a-half kiss-off “Tick Tock Tick” (“Got a problem with the way you talk/your lips are moving and they never stop”) and the bouncy, bass-driven “New England Street” have a loose, carefree but not careless vibe.
