Japandroids- not just another indie band from Vancouver

With the New Pornographers, Destroyer, Ladyhawk, You Say Party! We Say Die! and other performers putting Vancouver on the map in the new millennium, it's hard to ignore that there's an active indie scene going on there.

Listening to the third record (their first full-length) by Canadian duo Japandroids, you wonder why their name doesn't come up in this group. They're loud and sloppy but like the Replacements and more recently Titus Andronicus, they can make meaningful music out of it. They toast their town and chase after and leave their girls... you know, all the meaningful things that you'd want to hear about in a good rock song.

Hear Japandroids at MySpace & buy Post-Nothing at InSound on LP and you get the MP3's for it for free (it ain't available in CD format).
