Biography

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 1 guitar, 1 set of drums, and 2 ... Read more in Amazon's Japandroids Store

Review

As contagious as any of the lyrics, melodies, riffs, or drum fills are, their energy and lack of self-consciousness is every bit as equally lovable. 8.3 Best New Music --Pitchfork

Product Description

IJapandroidsinvece vengono da Vancouver e non hanno proprio nulla da volerti spiegare. Certe lezioni, come quelle di fare musica fracassona e coinvolgente, di cuore e muscoli, si imparano da sè, senza che il maestro salga in cattedra ma rimanendo seduto al tuo fianco. IJapandroidssono soltanto due,Brian King(chitarra e voce) eDavid Prowse(batteria e cori), ma sembrano un esercito in battaglia. Conosciutisi ai tempi dell’università hanno pubblicato il primo album nel 2009, quel “Post-Nothing” considerato giustamente un capolavoro quasi ovunque. Oggi tornano sulla lunga distanza con “Celebration Rock” dopo una serie di singoli raccolti (proprio grazie al successo di cui sopra) nell’ineffabile “No Singles”. Di vera e propria celebrazione si tratta, nel senso di festa, che infatti si apre e chiude con i fuochi d’artificio, nel mezzo uno spettacolo di rock durissimo, veloce, più punk e meno wave rispetto all’esordio, pezzi che non danno respiro se non per il singalong di certi ritornelli perfetti (“The House that Heaven Built” su tutti) per sentirsi ancora e sempre giovani e belli o almeno per ricordarsi di quando era così (“Younger Us”). I nostri sembrano aver aggiunto alla formula del noise dei padri nobili Dinosaur Jr. una buona dose di hard-core, così che le voci che si intrecciano sono sempre più a gola spiegata mentre la chitarra tesse melodie perfette e la batteria metronomica non sbaglia un colpo. Fedeli all’estetica essenziale del bianco e nero di copertina che trova il suo contrappunto nella compattezza di un album di sole otto tracce piuttosto veloci, ciò che colpisce è sicuramente un maggior spessore compositivo che si evince dai momenti in cui il piede si alza

4.0 out of 5 stars "Tell them all to go to hell" 20 Jun 2012
By Kenneth
Format:Audio CD
Celebration Rock Japandroids sophomore album was easily near the top of my list, for albums i was eagerly anticipating this year and if you've heard their previous record (Post Nothing) i probably don't need to tell you why. For the benefit of the review i will though;) Their 2009 debut was the most potent display of nostalgia fuelled, desperately chaotic Alt Rock i'd heard in a long time. It was emotional with a capital E and even if you thought the musicanship was lacking in sophistication or the lyrical simplicity was bordering on juvenile at times, you'd be hard pressed to deny the integrity of the sentiment. These guys played too gosh darn loud for their sincerity to be brought into question and to these ears the "amateurish" borderline hormonal rock songs felt extremely visceral and truely special.

Celebration Rock follows the formula that made Post Nothing so coruscatingly endearing with the band playing with that same corporeal intensity. David prowse explosively drums right after the openening fireworks on "The Night of Wine and Roses" and right up until the closing one's on "Continuous Thunder". Brian King brings his pummelling power chords and frenzied vocals to the fray again also, creating that same glorious cacophany that won so many people over on their debut. The only noticable progression on CR is perhaps in the lyrics department, the scope of PN didn't really extend beyond a fear of getting old and although CR mainly stays within this territory their perspective feels even more forthright this time round "Long lit up tonight And still drinking Don't we have anything to live for? Well of course we do" are the first lines that Brian King sings and this album is full of similar lines of affirmation and reverie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebration Rock 18 Jun 2012
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Celebration Rock is the album that was never meant to be. Its excellent predecessor Post-Nothingwas the sound of a mid-20s duo throwing in the towel yet giving it their all and going out with an almighty bang. It captured not only the band's hopes, fears and dreams, but it shone a mirror straight back at its audience. Just as Brian King and David Prowse's previous two EPs had been, these were identifiable songs that yelled about getting out of your hometown, drinking, getting girls (or not), being young and getting older.

The problem was the Post-Nothing was too good a sign-off, its rallying cries too loud to be contained in Vancouver, Canada, North America even. Word-of-mouth eventually took their mauling missive worldwide - and to ears that immediately demanded more.

Celebration Rock is the welcome result and on it Japandroids remain a rough-and-ready punk-rock twosome capable of astonishing turns of melody amid sense-shredding noise. Condensed into the same eight-track format as Post-Nothing, Celebration Rock is merely a precise extension of the past. There's arguably a more refined level of production - Prowse no longer seems to rely on cardboard boxes by way of drums, King's vocal is minutely clearer in the mix - but the pair are still all about shouting to-and-fro over peels of thunderous guitar and overblown drum rolls, living and breathing every air guitar/drum opportunity and laying down discernible party anthems with every massive chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it (or miss out!) 6 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this cd after seeing Japandroids support Gaslight Anthem this year. There is no track skipping when I listen to it which is always a good sign! It's not ground breaking but then who cares when it rocks! Play it and play it loud and if you get chance go and see them live.
