Maybe not, but this might be the best release of the still very young year that I have hard thusfar.....I think it  is the third album from Japandroids, a duo from Vancouver BC......they have a hell of a pedigree, Spin Magazine's band of the year 2012, and much critical love for the previous releases (I don't have em.....any help?)......

Really do like this one though, clever lyrics, tight rocking song-structures, nice blend of hard post-punk/garage-noise, I really can't stress enough how much you need to hear this one. THANKS to John N for sending this one our way.....took me a while to get to but good stuff is worth the wait......

And, it's a new (2017) release, so you SHOULD know what that means by now. use your decoder ring if you don't.
