It came out last year. It's a Brooklyn noise-rock band made up of two guys. It's 15 minutes long, consisting of 8 songs and was recorded in an Arizona basement. It samples the Mountain Goats "Best Heavy Metal Band Out of Denton." The last song sounds like a mix of the Knight Rider theme song and lyrics sung into a tin can connected to a recording device by newspaper twine.
It's, simply put, the best possible version of all of these things: and if you aren't excited by it, than one wonders how or why you found this website in the first place--we're not going to be reviewing Cabbage Patch Kids anytime soon, although one of our writers did audition for their television special.
At this point in human history, nothing will cleanse an American palette soaked in overly serious music, overly idiotic news and overly hilarious politicians than a quick 15 minute vacation into the land of Japanther, a place where you will be reminded of all the things that really matter: life moves pretty fast sometimes. If you don't look around once in awhile, you just might miss it. And you should rawk out as soon as you do.
