I SERIOUSLY cannot FUCKING WAIT for a new Japandroids album. They always manage to convince/inspire me that if two people want to make music together, even if all they have is an old telecaster and a drum kit, they can make it. I draw more inspiration from these two guys than almost any other modern musicians, partly because they seem to embody the spirit of DIY and “if you want it badly enough, just go for it and see what happens.” God bless Japandroids.
