Editors’ Notes

“If they try to slow you down/Tell them all to go to hell,” The Japandroids shout-sing on Celebration Rock’s opener, “The House That Heaven Built.” Singer/guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse nearly broke up before they even released their debut album, 2009’s Post-Nothing, due to a lack of interest in their hometown of Vancouver, B.C.; thank goodness they persevered. The Japandroids’ second album is so fresh and so unclean; Pitchfork has weighed in that this hook-heavy affair is “a rock record for the ages.” Certainly it’s packed with bursts of pretty punk rock that’s smart enough to be self-referential and emotionally grounded enough to avoid irony. Self-questioning swagger is on display throughout this album—the kind of style displayed by The Replacements in the '80s, The Afghan Whigs in the '90s, and more recently the Canadian act The Constantines and the Brooklyn-based band The Men.

Though Japandroids were more or less unknown at the time of their album debut, Post-Nothing got a big boost from the tastemaking website Pitchfork,...
