Japandroids: Celebration Rock
Buy! - (Polyvinyl)
This Vancouver, BC duo follows up their impressive 2009 debut album Post-Nothing with an aptly named album that exuberantly celebrates rock, youth, community and living for the moment with some of the year's most exciting rock music. Like their debut, Celebration Rock features a raw, lo-fi, punkish garage-pop sound but with more clarity and definition, allowing their punchy rhythms to hit harder, their fuzzy guitars to ring louder and their raging, life-affirming lyrics to strike deeper on stirring, anthemic songs packed with infectious shout-a-long backing vocals and other memorable pop hooks. 6/1/2012 - Don Yates
