Japandroids - Rockers East Vancouver
It's been awhile since I've heard an album that's thoroughly kicked my ass but at the same time put me in a constant state of elation. Kudos to these two Canadian dudes for doing just that. The drums sound big, the rhythms are tight, the guitars sound like a wall of chainsaws about to fall on you and that dual vocal attack is right on. Killer melodies and poppy hooks are sung, screamed, shouted, yelped and whatever else to make sure they're not lost in all that sweet fuzz. Let's dance.
[Post-Nothing will be released on April 28th. Pre-order here]
