“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”
Their bio succinctly wraps up what the pair, who met at University of Victoria, is up to. Of course it can’t convey the raw delicious boy energy these guys emit live, their genuine lack of affect, the unbridled bursts of clear freedom through organized songs. Japandroids is simply a delightful romp.
To further your appreciation for the duo, first watch this awesome KEXP video of Japandroids live at the KEXP BBQ, below. Then listen to the mp3s, above.
Japandroids’ new record,Post-Nothing (8/4/09, Polyvinyl Records) is a collection of eight sweaty, supercharged songs: The Boys Are Leaving Town, Young Hearts Spark Fire, Wet Hair, Rockers East Vancouver, Heart Sweats, Crazy/Forever, Sovereignty and I Quit Girls. Buy Post-Nothing Here.
