Japandroids Just Want to Party

The pop and fizzle of fireworks are among the first sounds heard on Canadian rock duo Japandroids’ latest Celebration Rock, an invitation to their collection of loose, frenzied rock ‘n’ roll anthems. At its core, it’s gritty, house party music, the kind of stuff that might earn noise complaints from the neighbors as 30 or 40 people crowd into a backyard to pay homage to drums and guitar.
