Japandroids - Post-Nothing

With so much intensity and enthusiasm felt all over this record, Japandroids risk becoming the band with the most powerful riffs and hooks of the year. But Post-Nothing is really like that: a sincere and heartfelt take into garage rock immersed in reverb and loaded with a breathtaking sense of urgency. So much so that it's really hard not to go along and join in, especially when you feel that these two Canadian guys are having at least as much fun playing as you when hearing them. Of course that having a great ear for tunes and a hand to write lyrics full of clever punchlines doesn't hurt either. Contagious stuff alert. (8/10)
