Shouty and overblown, Vancouver guitar-drums duo Japandroids plows through some wicked garage-punk anthems on its breakthrough album, Post-Nothing. The record has been hyped since its spring release on Canadian label Unfamiliar, and is about to be offered up to the rest of the world by Polyvinyl. Good thing, too, kickstarting as terrifically as it does with the Thin Lizzy–answering "The Boys Are Leaving Town," the life-affirming "Young Hearts Spark Fire," and the horny "Wet Hair." Post-Nothing loses steam after that initial burst, but settles into a captivating drone for the last few songs, not unlike a summer that ends too soon.
