Recorded at The Hive Creative Labs in June/July 2008

Japandroids (JPNDRDS) is a two piece band from Vancouver, BC. This 'band' started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intending to be a trio, the boys decided to forgo the logistical nightmare of having a 'lead singer' and do it themselves. As a consequence, Japandroids are one guitar, one set of drums, and two vocalizers. They call it garage rock. They don't care what you call it, as long as it's not minimal. Japandroids are maximal - a two piece band trying to sound like a five piece band.

The album is a cloudy yet sophisticated set of songs. I've always has respect for bands that aren't afraid to put less than 12 songs on a album. To me it's to just take out the filler and work on the better songs. This seems to be the practice of japandroids. Even though some of the lyrics are repetetive they are always taken second next to the music, and they are pop-fest of originaliity. I like how they are only a duo, but don't get caught up in incestrual nature of some duo. I even here some through backs to late 80s punk-hardcore, then drop in some shoegaze in the same song.

"Heart Sweats" freakin rocks. It has a classic rock bravado feel close to that of mick jagger, without the usual context of a mickjagger wannabe.

The next song crazy/forever, is sludgy, pulsing, arguably the best on the album. It reminds me of an Open Hand song that I love. The are vocals placed in the background for afterthought of the melody. A plea that what is now can always be.

Japandroids - Heart Sweats

Live in Vancouver at The Cobalt



Japandroids - Crazy/Forever (Live on KEXP)

I really want to see these guys live. They're more than amazing..




Japandroids - The Boys Are Leaving Town -

@ Pitchfork Music Festival 2009



Japandroids - Young Hearts Spark Fire

Well they are a noise pop band and the lyrics are genuine and they're both talented musicians.
It's a music style and since good music is subjective you shouldn't say this is unoriginal because it is.
They don't really sound like any other bands.
