Japandroids – Art Czars

By Will Oliver, February 20th 2010 — with 3 comments MP3 News

Japandroids are busy touring and as a result they are releasing 5 seven inch singles to keep their fans occupied while they record their follow-up to Post-Nothing. The first one released is the single “Art-Czar”.  I was surprised at how mellow the song is compared to what we got from their album. The song also sounds a lot cleaner studio wise. The fuzzy guitars and garage sound is still very much there, just not as oppressing. I am impressed with it, and think that Japandroids did well for themselves! The song was written during the Post-Nothing sessions, but is pretty different from anything on that album. If anything the song proves Japandroids don’t have to just rely on a fuzzy garage rock sound.

The vinyl is limited to 2000 copies and come with a cover Big Black’s “Racer X”. You can pre-order it from Polyvinyl Records right now. It ships on 4/2.

Japandroids can do no wrong in my opinion & their cover of Big Black’s Racer X is so awesome.
