Wednesday Spotlight: Japandroids

Posted by: Jason Tate (06/06/12)
If you haven't picked up Japandroids new album Celebration Rock yet -- I highly recommend you check it out. It's streaming in the replies, and on Rdio and Spotify. I know Blake already reviewed it, but I need to call more attention to this gem. One helluva great album ... exactly the perfect blend of punk and sing-a-long choruses. Exactly what I need right now. Don't miss "Fire's Highway" or "The House that Heaven Built" -- but the album works best as a whole, and it works best turned up very, very loud.

It's still blowing my mind that AP is covering this so thoroughly. Great, great job. Congrats on a worthwhile Wednesday spotlight and a band that more people on this site should pay attention to.

Don't miss these dudes live!

(If you dig this album do yourself a favor and check out The Men's "Open Your Heart")

I second this statement. Like Fang Island in the way that you can give high fives to it, and a similar raw/energetic vibe I got from some moments on Cloud Nothings 'Attack on Memory'.

Right on, Mr. Tate. Although I would say most bands do.

Which means it will FLY over the young kids heads, and they will opt out for more spectacle rather than sincerity. This is what our scene has become.
