Sounds like: Japandroids, but louder and dirtier. A bit of Dinosaur Jr. with a dose of Fugazi. A more rough and tumble Foo Fighters.

This week’s #jansportjams was love at first listen. We came across the first single from this Montreal duo’s upcoming LP, “Traces” a few months ago and couldn’t help turning the volume up. Like, way up.

Like other material from the band, their latest single, “Haze Away”, draws heavily from undeniably 90′s alt/indie rock influences like Sonic Youth, Superchunk, and Dinosaur Jr. The band is set to release Blame Confusion on February 18th and the band will immediately be hitting the road throughout Canada and the US, including at stop in Austin during SXSW.  Check out a full list of dates here.
