Quite well, actually. In the hands of Beat Radio, a project resting on Long Islander Brian Sendrowitz' blend of spacey and grungy folk, it becomes suited for back-to-school bedtime hour. (Your classmates? Don't worry about them. "When they love you, and they will...") The super-ultra-awesome rousing chorus of Japandroids' original is now laid down over a bed of acoustic strumming with Sendrowitz' slight drawl smoothing out the strains. It's tender, and comforting, and a soft blow to the system: summer won't last forever, let you forget. Listen after the jump.
