Featured Artist: Japandroids

Striking the North American scene like a lightning bolt with their epic 2009 LP Post-Nothing, Japandroids are a true force of nature. The Vancouver-bred duo of Brian King (guitar/vocals) and David Prowse (drums/vocals) continue to mold a sound that’s unnaturally colossal, drawing on the grandiosity of early 1970s Who, the buzzsaw ferocity of Hüsker Dü, punk-pop’s endless fascination with youth and the glorification of it…and of course, a healthy dose of Canadian humility. On the heels of Post-Nothing‘s success, the band put out three scorching singles in 2010, then took their time last year to craft a proper full-length follow-up. We have a pile of reasons to get behind this band, and the fact that the newly released LP is called Celebration Rock — and better yet, that it lives up to its name — may top the list.
