We’re deep in summer already, so what band to turn to then the band that dominated a solid half of my summer last year? Vancouver punk duo Japandroids have been working on a project that sees them releasing a series of 7-inch singles over the course of the year – “Younger Us” (along with a cover of X’s “Sex and Dying in High Society”) being the second. If you want a copy, you better hurry, as there’s only 2500 clear vinyl copies available (buy here). As for the song, it’s sort of a bizarro version of “Young Hearts Spark Fire,” with a similar guitar part and surging drums, all wrapped loosely around Brian King’s lusty, nostalgic lyrics. In other words, it’s Japandroids, and it rocks.

i think the line "remember that night you were already in bed, said 'fuck it' got up to drink with me instead" has already defined my summer

i was thinking that the other day. like why would i spend years making the perfect album when japandroids could just spend a day writing songs about fucking girls in the summer and it'd be better. i got minidepressed for a while.
