Japanther was originally supposed to be an art project, and maybe they still are. The brash Brooklyn duo has won people over with wild unconventional live shows: The band has performed with synchronized swimmers and marionette puppets, on the Williamsburg bridge and on the back of a truck. Yet at the heart of those bizarre art experiments, Japanther's hooky punk songs are sure to get a crowd flailing and dancing with abandon. Together, it's this mix of fierce immediacy and atypical high concepts that makes

Japanthers music is, all at the same time, poignant, intense, danceable and fun. While they often refer to themselves as "more of an art project than a band" Japanther gets points for making some of the most memorable, hummable and fun music of any art project in recent memory. Japanther is part Screamers intensity, part Misfits anthemery, part RZA samples/beats and part Lightning Bolt art/freakshow.
