Alright, so I noticed a lack of this band on a lot of other blogs that I frequent and for some reason getting a hold of their music is fairly difficult but I ended up getting my hands on all of their studio albums.  Hooray!  The bad part is it's a mixed batch on quality ranging from 320kbps to 160kbps but I'm honestly not sure if high quality releases of their earlier stuff even exists.  But if it does, I would be super stoked if someone sent it to me!  I'm also impartial to receiving any of their splits and EP's so send them my way if you have them.  Anyway, Karate was a super dope indie rock band that utilized a lot of blues and jazz influences in their songs that I think everyone needs to have and if you don't have them already you should be ashamed.  Oh, and a lot of the tracks aren't in the correct place so forgive me, but it's an easy enough fix.  Aaaaand some of the tracks aren't properly named, but dammit I'm sorry!  Enjoy guys!
