Japandroids - 'Celebration Rock' (new album / stream)

Japandroids

Celebration Rock

(Polyvinyl)

Releasing: 5 June

Japanroids are back with their sophomore outing, Celebration Rock, following the critically acclaimed 2009 debut Post-Nothing. Guitarist Brian King recently told Pitchfork: "On a lot of this new record, we actually tried to simulate the sound of what we thought the crowd would do during the songs," says King. "Dave (Prowse, drums) and I were in the studio just screaming out as if we were in the audience at our own show."

You can check out the new tune "The House That Heaven Built" over at Soundcloud and catch the band live at one of the dates below.

The Two Louis: "Pops" and "The Wildest"

New Orleans' two great Louis, Armstrong and Prima, were formed by their hometown and its culture; though both left the city, it never left them or their music. They were both artists and entertainers, gifted musicians, and unabashed crowd-pleasers.
