"480 Minutes" - Band Name of the Week: Japandroids

The time has come once again to check out the best of the summer's indie rock noise pop releases, and this week we debut new material from seven different acts: 3 from LA, 2 from NY, one from Vancouver, British Columbia, and one from Wasilla, Alaksa, but please, don't hold that against them.

New music getting its BAGeL Radio debut today includes songs by Awol One & Factor (Los Angeles, CA), Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (Los Angeles, CA), Japandroids (Vancouver, Canada), Motel Motel (Brooklyn, NY), Portugal. The Man (Wasilla, AK), Sabrosa Purr (Los Angeles, CA), and Soft Black (Brooklyn, NY).

The time-slot experiment continues: today's show will begin at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time (11:00 a.m. Eastern, 18:00 in the UK). Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes and let me know what you think of the earlier start time.
