JPNDRDS single

Garage-rock superheroes Japandroids announced a series of five singles to be released this year, each 7" vinyl pairing a non-album track from their Post-Nothing sessions with a cover. The first, to be released in early April, pairs a cover of Big Black's "Racer X" with another anthemic ode to punk rock and, like, girls, "Art Czars." Early standout quote: "I'm really sorry if you're still believing / They suck in angels but they spit out demons."

You can stream it courtesy Pitchfork here, and you can pre-order the 7" via Polyvinyl here. And, in the spirit of ruining surprises, you can hear a live cut of their "Racer X" cover (as well as "Rockers East Vancouver," beauty) on Daytrotter.

Update: Just remembered JPNDRDS covered McClusky's "To Hell With Good Intentions" at their show at the High Noon. That was on their All Lies EP, though, and I kind of doubt they would just re-release that. What other covers could there be? Hüsker Dü and the Minutemen are my immediate thoughts.
