Top songs: Papa Roach claim No.1 spot in our latest Tracks Of The Week poll
11. Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built This is taken from Japandroids’ most recent full-length Celebration Rock, which came out in June. The album has been described as a mix between punk and classic rock, with a wide range of influences including The Replacements, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and The Hold Steady. Dave Prowse (he’s Japandroids’ drummer/vocalist, not to be confused with the Green Cross Code/Star Wars guy) has also cited Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite for Destruction as an influence.
12. Michelle Branch – Play With Fire The song was produced by John Leventhal, who previously worked on Arizona-born Branch’s 2003 full-length Hotel Paper and 2010′s EP Everything Comes And Goes, not to mention her music with Jessica Harp in The Wreckers. Check it out. It’s more of a subtle smoulder than a blazing conflagration, but we like it a lot.
