Japandroids Announce Singles Series

    Because they’re going to probably go 2010 without releasing a new album, Vancouver’s Japandroids have announced that they’ll be releasing five new singles this year in order to give the people what they want (raucous, heart-on-sleeve rock, obviously). The singles, the first of which is due out on April 13, will feature songs that were recorded during the Post-Nothing sessions on the a-side and covers on the b-side. Thusly, yhe first single, titled “Art Czars,” will be backed with a cover of Big Black’s “Racer X.” You can hear “Art Czars” over at Pitchfork right now.
