1.  Japandroids, Celebration Rock

“We don’t cry for those nights to arrive/We yell like hell to the heavens” is a fun thing to yell, the kind of line that reminds you why yelling is fun. All over Celebration Rock, Japandroids stand firm in their belief that every “oh yeah” must have an equal and opposite “all right.” Guitarist Brian King and drummer Dave Prowse do for indie rock what the Pet Shop Boys did for disco, going for effects so broad and cheap and obvious, so blatantly manipulative, at first you might suspect they’re kidding. But they’re not – they’re just funny, which adds to the emotional impact. They race from “The Nights Of Wine and Roses” (the one that goes “whoa-oooh”) to “The House That Heaven Built (the one that goes “whoa-oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh”) to “Continuous Thunder” (the one that goes “yeah yeah yeah yeah”). And through it all, they yell like hell until the heavens yell back.

Post-Nothing (2009–2010)

In January 2009, Japandroids signed to independent Canadian label Unfamiliar Records, who were eager to release the album, despite the band’s reservations about continuing.[2] Frustrated by label interest only after they had decided to break-up, King and Prowse reluctantly agreed to continue Japandroids temporarily, and began performing live again.[2] In March 2009, taste-making website Pitchfork Media awarded the song “Young Hearts Spark Fire” a ‘Best New Track’ designation,[9] instantaneously exposing the band to a large audience outside of Canada[citation needed]. Their debut album, Post-Nothing was released in Canada in April 2009, originally on vinyl only. Pitchfork immediately championed the album, awarding it a ‘Best New Music’ designation, and praising its rawness, energy and reckless abandon.[10] Japandroids were subsequently signed to Polyvinyl Record Co. in June 2009.[11]

Post-Nothing was released worldwide in August 2009 to widespread critical acclaim, especially in Canada where Exclaim! named it the second best album of 2009.[12] It was long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize[13] as well as nominated for the Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year.[14] The album was also well-received internationally, appearing on many year-end lists including Pitchfork Media (#15),[15] Spin (#16),[16] NME (#39),[17] The A.V. Club (#25),[18] Pop Matters (#35),[19] Stereogum (#21), and reached No. 22 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[20]

Japandroids toured extensively to promote the album, and quickly gained notoriety for their energetic live performances.[3] The Post-Nothing Tourconsisted of 7 individual legs, and included over 200 shows in more than 20 countries.[21] While primarily headlining their own shows, Japandroids also toured supporting acts such as A Place To Bury Strangers and Health in Europe, and The Walkmen in North America. The tour was originally scheduled to begin on April 23, 2009 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. After performing only one show, Japandroids were forced to postpone and reschedule the remainder of their first full-scale North American tour due to a health emergency. On the morning of April 24, 2009, King was checked into Calgary’s Foothills Medical Center to undergo emergency surgery for a life-threatening perforated ulcer.[5] Among the canceled dates was their show at the Sasquatch! Music Festival. Touring resumed June 13, 2009 after King’s recovery with a performance at Vancouver’s Music Wastefestival. The final show of the Post-Nothing Tour took place on October 27, 2010 at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, New Jersey, though two New Year’s shows at Schubas Tavern in Chicago officially marked the end of the Post-Nothing album cycle.

Initially, the duo desired to include several more tracks on the album, but were unable due to insufficient funds.[22] Many of the un-included tracks that the duo had written for the album were later recorded and released in 2010 as series of limited edition 7″ singles. These tracks include “Art Czars“, “Younger Us“, and “Heavenward Grand Prix“. The same year, Japandroids re-released their first two EPs as a compilation titled No Singles. The band has stated that both the 7″ singles series, as well as the No Singles compilation, were designed to appease fans desire for more music, as they would not be able to record a 2nd album until 2011 due to an extensive touring schedule.[22]

Celebration Rock (2011-present)

After taking the bulk of 2011 off to work on new material, Japandroids revealed that they would tour North America with Bass Drum of Death throughout August/September playing primarily smaller, intimate venues in order to test out their new material prior to the recording of their second album.[23] During these shows, the band debuted several new songs including “Fire’s Highway,” “Adrenaline Nightshift,” and “Evil’s Sway.”[24] On March 26, 2012, Japandroids announced that their second album Celebration Rock would be released by Polyvinyl Record Co. on May 29, 2012 in Canada and June 5, 2012 internationally.[4][25] The album gained wide praise from critics, earning a Best New Music designation from Pitchfork and a 9 out of 10 score fromSpin.[26] It also made Rolling Stone’s list of the Top 50 albums of 2012. A limited edition 7″ of the album’s first single “The House That Heaven Built” was released on May 15, 2012.
