Japandroids spark fire
One of the bands I’m most interested in seeing at this year’s Pitchfork fest is Japandroids, a two-man outfit from Vancouver. Guitar and drums — what else do you need? Drummer David Prowse and guitarist Brian King say they’re two guys trying to sound like a five-piece band. The sound on their debut album “Post-Nothing” is punky, fuzzy, lo-fi and should appeal to fans of No Age or Superchunk back in the day.
Japandroids was supposed to make its Chicago debut earlier this month but canceled shows due to King’s surgery. The tour is expected to resume June 13.
