10. The Walkmen - "Heaven"
If you have not given the 'Japandroids' sophomore album Celebration Rock a spin yet then you are missing out. The Canadian rock duo consisting of Brian King (guitar/vocals) and David Prowse (drums/vocals), produce a giant sound you would think was coming from a four or five-man band. The album is like a Red Bull and vodka chased with a Five-Hour Energy shot. Front to back, it's a roller-coaster ride of some of the best energetic rock I have heard so far in 2012. If you like a garage friendly head-banging sound of scorching guitar riffs and foot-stomping drums, this album is for you. I can't wait to see this band live!
