MP3: || “Heavenward Grand Prix” ||

Here’s the newest installment in the five 7″ singles series from fuzz-rockers Japandroids this year! “Heavenward Grand Prix” is an ominous wrecking ball filled with Brian’s scuzzy guitar, Dave’s forceful drumming, and shouts of, “We don’t have to be like there are!” This will be coming out on November 17th, which is also 7″ Day! You can preorder it by itself right HERE, or you can get it HERE with a few other Polyvinyl 7″ releases that day for a lower price!  Also, check their MySpace for a bunch of upcoming dates with The Walkmen!

01. Younger Us
02. Sex and Dying in High Society

“Younger Us” is the newest addition to the 7″ single series being offer from Vancouver garage-kings Japandroids. As a result of them touring extensively and not being able to record a new record, they promised five 7″s each with a leftover Post-Nothing track as an A-side, and a cover on the B-side, with punk-rawk anthem “Art Czars” 7″ being the first released single.  “Younger Us” is an emo-heavy jam straight out of Jimmy Eat World’s fuzzy demos, with lyrics that just make you wanna be a teenager again more than ever, along with a blasting cover of X’s “Sex and Dying in High Society”.  This officially gets released on July 16th, but I got my clear vinyl 7″ in the mail yesterday!  Go here to order/pre-order a copy from Polyvinyl, and just a note, they sold out of the “Art Czars” 7″ before the official street date, so don’t sleep on this one!

01. Art Czars
02. Racer-X

Japandroids have a very very busy 2010 planned, and those plans actually don’t include recording or releasing a follow-up to 2009’s Post-Nothing. But there’s no reason to be sad, Japandroids have some big reasons for you to be super happy this year. They are going to be releasing five 7″s throughout the year with a leftover Post-Nothing jam and a cover. So here is the first installment of the 7″ series, “Art Czars”, a garage-punk anthem alongside a heart-racing cover of Big Black’s “Racer-X”. You can order this 7″ over at Polyvinyl Records on sweet clear vinyl!!! But get on it quick, I hear they are close to running out.
