Great track, great band.

I Like where this is going
After listening to "The House That Heaven Built," I can feel confident that Japandroid's upcoming album will be my go-to of the summer. It hits hard, yet is incredibly catchy and forces you to sing along, possibly with a fist pump. It seems like they've again found a perfect place for noise and pop to live as one in awesome-ness.
The House That Heaven Built is a good track. Buy the record and listen to that instead. But stay far, far away from their Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds cover on the b-side. Wow is it bad. Covering Nick Cave almost never works out well for anyone but even less so when you're not willing to really go for it. They bring nothing new to it musically and the delivery of the lyrics neuters the entire thing. "Jack" is one of Nick's more ridiculous songs, almost an act of macho self-parody, (lyrically, it could have fit well on one of his Grinderman records right next to "No ***** Blues") and really not to be taken too seriously. You either sing it like a maniac or you treat it with a dose of irony. Taking it seriously, as Japandroids do, just misses the point.
