Here we are, ON MY BIRTHDAY! and we get a second taste of the new record.

I was spoiled and got the chance to see Japandroids at The Cobalt back in the fall. But the boys are back in town…. with The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn!

beer

When I’m not music blogging or playing Battlefield 1 on the Xbox (DJBOULANGER add me up!) I work at a radio station in Vancouver called CFOX.

For funsies, me and the imaging producer Jamie (aka Jello) produce an occasional craft beer show called Sip and Spin.

Last week, Jamie and I hung out with Jack from Vancouver’s Main Street Brewing. Jack was pulling their Stag & Pheasant Imperial Stout out of bourbon barrels, where it had been aging for a year!

Maybe you’ll take a second to watch. Hey, maybe you like craft beer from Vancouver and you’ll consider sharing. Maybe.

Go with yourself.

I am pretty much obsessed with the latest single from JAPANDROIDS.

This and Cloud Nothings have been on repeat at home lately.

The band announced a wold tour today which brings them back to Vancouver. This time for a show at The Commodore on March 20th.

Craig Finn of The Hold Steady fame will open a bunch of the shows including the Vancouver gig.

In unrelated news…. I decided I want to be a basketball fan. I just need a team to cheer for…so I picked the old Vancouver team…now living life in Memphis. The Grizzlies!

I called the Grizzlies play-by-play guy to learn about the team.Also I find out what happened to a Vancouver legend, Super Grizz!

Took the little boy on a hike on Sunday. We saw a ton of fish in the Coquitlam river doing their fish thing.

JAPANDROIDS rage back with the announcement of a new record called Near To The Wild Heart Of Life. Polyvinyl has it on pre-order right now, record ships January 27th.

The record is 8 songs sequenced specifically for vinyl. Songs 1 to 7 form some sort of loose narrative so says the press, with track 8 acting as an epilogue.

The first share song is the title track. It will be released as a 7-inch singled backed with a cover of the Talking HeadsLove → Building on Fire.”

Their third albums follows 2012’s Celebration Rock and ’09’s Post-Nothing.

Talking to Pitchfork, Brian King talks about the song writing.

“In some ways, we’re approaching this like it’s our very first record. We’re removing all the self-imposed rules that led to the songs and the sound of our whole career up until now. When you do that, you can try anything.”

1 Near To The Wild Heart Of Life (4:57)
2 North East South West (4:21)
3 True Love And A Free Life Of Free Will (4:26)
4 I’m Sorry (For Not Finding You Sooner) (2:28)
5 Arc Of Bar (7:25)
6 Midnight To Morning (4:44)
7 No Known Drink Or Drug (3:11)
8 In A Body Like A Grave (5:22)

“I used to be good, but now I’m bad.”

Halloween was fun times! Bush wa sin Vancouver for a sold-out show at the Commodore. For 51 years old, Gavin Rossdale is a fireball of energy and still sounds vintage 90s. Great show, fun night. My wife Coral, her sister Alyx, and I went has Daenerys and her dragons.

Harpoonist

On Saturday night, Vancouver bands The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer will be performing at the Vogue Theatre with (the pride of Coquitlam!) The Matinee. A great mix of bluesy rock and alternative country. Let’s have a listen to a couple songs.

Go with yourself.
