Javelins are a Detroit-area post-punk power pop trio that meld sweet spaced-out psychedelia with angular post-rock rhythms and lyrics heavy with dreamy imagery.

Javelins are:
Matt Howard--guitar, Julian Wettlin--bass, Matt Rickle--drums/vocals
Earlier this month, the lifelong friends were featured in a mini-documentary marking the 10th anniversary of their breakout album No Plants Just Animals. The video below is part live show, part interview, exploring their approach to making music, the chemistry between them, and the overall history of the band.

Meanwhile, Javelins are one performing component of a 3-day music festival out in Ypsilanti raising funds for 826michigan's nonprofit education programs in local public schools. The coordinators of the 11th annual Mittenfest music festival have curated a mix-tape, of sorts, via bandcamp, featuring bands that span the 3-days worth of individual lineups. 

For more information on this year's Mittenfest, read my article via The Current Magazine (in Ann Arbor).
