Canadian rockers Japandroids claim that the title of their debut album, Post Nothing, was a pithy rebuke to those who might pigeonhole the duo in any particular sub-genre. But we know better. When Brian King and David Prowse combine the daydreamy washout of shoegaze with the spastic shrill of punk rock, the result is alluring enough to birth a genre all it's own.

Blending a keen pop sensibility into discord, King and Prowse bring achingly lovely melodies to the crest before crashing them back down into a frenetic soundscape. Its a fitting parallel to their journey on a hype tsunami after Post-Nothings release back in 2009 thats now somewhat subsided.
Presumably eager to dispel any murmurs of a sophomore slump, Japandroids have embarked on a rigorous North American tour debuting their latest material, which includes a stop in Phoenix
