Judging by Long Island’s Brian Sendrowitz’s music-making moniker Beat Radio, you might expect a bevy of throbbing, clubby bass jams, but you’d be wrong – Sendrowitz has been making pretty but not at all corny acoustic pop-folk since 2005. His latest offering is a fantastic cover of Japandroids’ recent jam-of-all-jams “The House That Heaven Built,” and, while we love the fist-pumping, moshpit-starting anthemic original, we’ve got to hand it to Sendrowitz for making his cover into something yearningly tender and beautiful.
