Hypetrak is just full of good ideas, aren't they?
I have to admit, it might be physically impossible for me to dislike a band called Japandroids.
I'd like to make an attempt at describing them for you, but it's a little tough. The duo is sort of like some things you may have heard before . . .but not.
They sound like all the best parts of one of those unsigned bands (which they are) you hear live at a bar that has $4 Yuengling & Jager specials (an extreme compliment). It's raw, unpolished, jumbled, messy, screaming, throaty, dirty rock n' roll. Just the way I like it...heavy on the roll. And much like my favorite "band who I must see succeed befor I die", The Carps, Japandroids are a two-piece outfit who somehow manage to draw more sound out of themselves than should be humanly possible.
You know what? They just inspired the flipside to my trademarked "Cognac & Blazer" music label. Behold: "Yueng & Jager" music!
