Celebration Rock by Japandroids
Released: May 2012
Label: Polyvinyl Records
The Vancouver duo's sophomore release is a celebration indeed, with its juicy rock 'n' roll center bookended by the popping and cracking of fireworks. "Don't we have anything to live for?/ Well of course we do/ But until it comes true, we're drinking" -- that's how these guys lead us into Celebration Rock, a set of joyous oh-oh-oh's and fuzzy, raucous guitar-drum interplay. Lead vocalist Brian King has the snotty shout of an indie-rock god from the '80s, a decade they take a lot of cues from, channeling Springsteen and The Replacements, and covering The Gun Club's "For the Love of Ivy."
