I've been a fan of D.C. postpunk act Imperial China for a few years, but for one reason or another the trio's sophomore album, 2012's How We Connect, got lost in a flood of releases. It's been nearly a year since the band dropped that collection, an occasion that's giving me the chance to revisit it.

Today's 12 O'Clock Track is the fourth song off How We Connect, "Creative License."

Imperial China has made some fascinating songs exploring the combination of angular postpunk and gnarly electronics, and on "Creative License" the band uses eerie synths as a backdrop for some jagged guitar riffs. Stream it below and check out the whole album at Imperial China's Bandamp page.
