Japandroids … Celebration Rock … 2012
A rip-roaring album about being young and irresponsible - pretty standard, I know, but they do it really well. This album is really a celebration of rock. Recommended! RIYL No Age, The Gaslight Anthem, Husker Du, Wavves, Titus Andronicus & The Replacements.
Jimmy Fallon … Blow Your Pants Off … 2012
This album is comprised of musical skits from his late-night TV show. It’s hilarious and actually pretty awesome. He does a killer Neil Young, and there are stellar guest performances on here. Including Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney (singing “Scrambled Eggs,” the original lyrics for his hit “Yesterday”), and Justin Timberlake. Super good.
