Japandroids - "The House That Heaven Built"

Last week, we posted “The House That Heaven Built,” the excellent new track from ragged Canadian destroyers Japandroids. That track is the first single from Japandroids’ new album Celebration Rock, and the 7″ version of it, out next month, features something nearly as badass on the B-side: A cover of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ unhinged, blues-damaged 1992 wailer “Jack The Ripper.” Listen to the Japandroids’ fuzzed-up version of it below.

The 7″ version of “The House That Heaven Built” is out 5/4 on Polyvinyl; pre-order it here.

  1. I’m not too familiar with the original version, but what was nice about this was hearing Japandroids giving their style some room to breathe, unlike the WWE is doing with Dolph Ziggler as of late.

  2. Nick Cave is always a good choice for a cover song.
