Though they may not have the universal name recognitions of Carly Rae Jepsen, for certain contingents of indie hipsters and punk brawlers alike, Japandroids released the song of the summer with “The House That Heaven Built.” The fist-pump-along anthem inspired many a beer raised high and that wall-of-rock power would be hard to top. So Beat Radio’s Brian Sendrowitz takes things in the opposite direction, stripping all bombast away for a folkie campfire strum.
In the past six months, he’s also released covers of Robyn’s “With Everybody Heartbeat” and the Weakerthans’ “Left and Leaving,” though those both employ a more lush production template. Download all three below. (via Pretty Much Amazing)
