I went and saw this band a couple weeks ago and fell in love. Their name is Japanther and they're a punk-ish/garage rock-ish group from Brooklyn. It's two dudes, one on bass and one on drums playing along with tapes they previously made and they sing into old telephones instead of microphones. They're sweaty, loud, vulgar and crazy. Who could ask for anything more?

I read up on them a little more after the show. It doesn't really even sound like they call them selves a band but rather seem to consider themselves to be something along the lines of performance artists, making statements and rocking out. They started as an art project while attending Pratt. They've done collaborative projects and have been seen performing along with the likes of synchronized swimmers and giant puppets. I think they also do street art. Double cool.

They're just awesome and crazy and I love them. So listen to them and tell me what you think.

Here's a video.
