Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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.

Review

"Japandroids have a point of view and an M.O., but more impressively, they've mastered another secret to swaying the public: confidence without smugness." --Spin

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! November 2, 2010
Format:Vinyl
Hands-down, this is one of my favorite albums of 2009. It's a fun album to turn up the volume to and just rock out. It's just two guys playing an enthusiastic mix of post-punk, post-rock, and noise. The first three songs hit like a freight-train and are some of the best I've heard in a while. I defy anyone to not shout/sing along with "Wet Hair" as loud as you can. You just can't stop yourself. The last song, "I Quit Girls" is the best. It's so simple, yet it encapsulates the feeling of meeting "that" girl so well. The middle sags a bit because it slows down the tempo a bit but the songs are still top-notch. Plus, the album is short (8 songs, 35 minutes) so it breezes by quickly but it sticks with you for a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars this wasn't made in the early 90's? October 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this reminds me of lots of early 90's noise-punk, emo, post-rock type stuff. The biggest influence I hear doesn't have to do with the songs, but rather the sound. It has a siamese dream like wall of sound and fuzz. It's quite impressive. It's a fun record. Took me about 3 full listens before I could sing along to some of it. It's sincere stuff. I like.

4.0 out of 5 stars An album to share September 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
There are always two kinds of music fans. The type that listen to the hype a band generates and the kind that listen with a critical ear. I've always been the first. And when i read reviews for the debut for japandroids i was amped.

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.

I wonder if i could convince anybody to buy this cd. probably not with all my poor verbage. I don't even know the track listing right now, all i know is the song i'm on "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.

i like this album, and i think my wife will like it to, it will be played alot on my trip to utah.
