album review: japandroids

The debut from Japandroids sounds nothing like their name might suggest. In liu of bleeps and synth soaked dance tunes, the rock-ish duo pump our ears full of brash, distorted chord-based rock. And although their moniker suggests man-killing machines from the other side of the world, they write pretty raw human emotion quite well, and hail from our northern neighbor, Canada. Post-Nothing is more like post-post-punk, emulating the raw edge of late eighties punk without getting too out of control, and washing out the alternative punk of the early 2000's with tons of fuzz. ..Keep Reading.. - joe puglisi
