new japandroids "The House That Heaven Built"

Japandroids.Com was just updated within the last hour or so... "The internet pixies" did their magic. And the new single was posted as well, although no embedding has been allowed other than within Japandroids.Com itself. Here's the direct link to soundcloud:

Japandroids - The House That Heaven Built

The new album (due in June, just in time for summertime/June-fest insanity) has been brilliantly titled Celebration Rock. Something tells us Andrew WK would hugely approve of this. The new single essentially sounds like "Younger Us" part 2... we're totally on-board. Count us in. Apparently, "Younger Us" will be included as 1 of the 8 songs on Celebration Rock... which is cool since it will probably fit-in with the overall feel of the album, but also a bummer since only 7 out of the 8 songs on this thing will be new to us... (And 1 of those 7 is a cover. Guess we'll have to wait and see...)

We're expecting the new album to sound like "House That Heaven Built" and "Younger Us..." referring to the singalong-party-anthem atmosphere. While we totally enjoy this idea, part of us is hoping to get proven wrong, since one thing we really enjoyed about Post-Nothing was the variety in texture... Side 2 specifically started out with the cathartic head-banger "Heart Sweats," moving into the spaced-out "Crazy/Forever," heading into "Sovereignty" which is closer to the "Younger Us" vibe in the way it could perfectly accompany a college-spring-break road trip, and closing with the droning and introspective "I Quit Girls." Once again, we'll have to wait and see what happens...

They also have new t-shirts which are unfortunately far less exciting than the classic "No God. Only Japandroids" design from a few years back (and their 2 other classic t-shirts from the same era). But in either case, we're excited as fuck to have new Japandroids songs in our lives.
