You, the readers of Stereogum, have already anointed Japandroids’ bleeding-heart banger “The House That Heaven Built” as the Indie Song Of The Summer, so obviously a music video was a long time coming. This morning, we get one. In the instantly-iconic black-and-white video, director Jim Larson captures the Vancouver duo in pure grind mode: Playing sweat-drenched shows, lugging gear into the back of their van, pretending whiskey bottles are their dicks, and — in a rare moment of between-show relaxing — shooting guns at molotov cocktails. It’s a great, great video. Watch it below.
