[COVER/VIDEO] Beat Radio/Japadroids – “The House That Heaven Built”

i settled in slowly, to this house that you call home to blood and breath, fear, flesh and bone

♫ Beat Radio – The House That Heaven Built (Japandroids cover)

Get down to the mellowed out Beat Radio (remember them?) cover of one of the years best songs or just go buck wild to the video. Normally clip videos are boring as shit but watching them rock the world and kick it off stage is strangely endearing. Plus, its video documentation of why theirs was of the best concerts of the year.

[PLAYLIST] The Best SONGS of 2012 – Part 1 (Jan-June)

Lets not talk about the fact this year is already half over. Thats just insane. About as insane as the quality of jams that have been pumping through TBE HQ’s speakers these past 6 months. Here is the best of the best. Did I miss any? Did you miss any?

[LIVE] Japandroids @ The Echo, June 15th, 2012

♫ Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built

Th story goes that Japandroids had basically quit being a band in late 2008, right before a surge in Internet attention got them to give it one last go. Cheers to you, Internet, I owe you one. Watching Brian and David rip through their set on Friday night was a sight (and sound) to behold. One guitar, one drum kit, two voices, and the two absolute beasts controlling them all. I haven’t seen that kind of overflowing passion pour out of a band on stage in years. And crowd gave back. There was moshing, stage diving, crowd surfing, and electric sing alongs throughout. Do not miss Read more

[STREAM] Japandroids – “The House That Heaven Built”

when the love me and they will, i’ll tell em all the love in your shadow, and if they try to slow me down i’ll tell em all to go to hell

New Japadroids jam is as rip roaring good fun as ever. It’s the sound we have come to love from the Canadian duo but somehow seems even catchier. They manage to take the kind of guitar and drums sonic assault that usually works best in under 3 minute bursts and keep it fun and engaging for nearly 5. Those sing-along “ooh ooh ooohs” sure do help. Crank it! Besides being appropriately named, their Sophomore LP Celebration Rock is out June 5th.

JAPANDROIDS are YOUNG, follow their HEARTS, and SPARK up jams of FIRE!

i don’t wanna worry about dying, i just wanna worry about sunshine girls

♫ Japandroids – Young Hearts Spark Fire

Japandroids first landed in my iTunes almost exactly a year ago, about the same time the rest of the world was loving their raw two-man rock. Somehow their rough and loose jams didn’t grab me then but after a year of periodically coming back to these singles, and eventually picking up the rest of their debut LP, Post-Nothing, I’m sold on their style. Not all 8 tracks are as thrash worthy as these two but their energy and passion is undeniable. Their take on the life of a late twenty-something (me) is also spot on as they tear through verses about getting older and losing touch with the bliss of youth. However, at the same time they are clearly two guys who make their own fun in life. I recommend you let them make a little fun in yours. A collection of B-sides and early material, No Singles, came out this year and while I haven’t dowse into that yet, I’ve heard a few jams that keep up with their speaker-busting tradition.
