re: Japandroids killed it on Letterman last night (Posted on 6/21/13 at 11:03 pm to The Seaward)
Sorry but I did not enjoy that. I really dislike what I've heard from japandroids so take this for what it's worth:
They did not kill it. Their instrumental performance really wasn't that great. Especially the guitarist. Though that may be due to the song which had few redeeming qualities in the way it was presented.
To me it sounded like a two piece blink 182 tribute band trying to reproduce Buddha or Cheshire Cat.
They're not my cup of tea, but I wanted to throw out a short analysis after listening to them once more.
