PopMatters Premiered Vicky and the Vengents' "You Used to Be My Baby"

If the antagonists in Grease were punks instead of hair-slicked greasers, Vicky and the Vengents’ “You Used to Be My Baby” would be their heartsong. The band, who describe their sound as “maltshop punk”, pays homage to doo-wop and classic girl groups from the ‘50s, all the while adding in a healthy dose of power chords to enliven the aesthetic.

Megafaun

Release Week For Megafaun!

This week, Durham N.C. trio and former Justin Vernon bandmates Megafaun released their fourth LP, the self-titled Megafaun. The album was the #3 Most Added record at CMJ this week, and already the reviews are rolling in! Check out some of the initial praise below!

From Pitchfork

“Megafaun have quietly completed the smart, sizable stylistic shift they started on last fall’s Heretofore EP, drawing back on the burly backwoods weirdness of their earlier work while widening their stylistic scope and pushing compositional delicacy to the forefront. And Megafaun may be their most immediately ingratiating, rewarding LP yet” – 7.8

From PopMatters

“No matter how you frame it, Megafaun is a stunning, expansive, and utterly satisfying record. It’s roadworn but hopeful, melodically fascinating, and never misses a step on its wandering, restless path” – 8/10

From KCRW

“With a new self-titled recording that ranges from free jazz to Delta blues, Megafaun proves they can cover all kinds of classic American music.”

Megafaun are in New York for two shows at Mercury Lounge, on September 25 and 26. Details can be found here in The New Yorker.

PopMatters gives The Great Book of John 9/10!

Check out this raving review from Zachary Houle of PopMatters.

“…Simply put, The Great Book of John is a stunning record, one without a weak track in sight, and is one of the most consistently enjoyable albums to reach these ears in quite some time. The Great Book of John is unrelentingly stark and brilliant in equal measure, and you simply just cannot. get. enough. of. it.”
