Vehicles
Vehicles
Alternative rock space jam are all adjectives that have been used to describe Vehicles sound. We just decided to push them all together. There are many elements and influences that are all obvious in Vehicles sound. Elements that recall U2, Echo and the Bunnymen, Interpol, and Mellowdrone. Vehicles have been a band in the Midwest for over seven years and play regionally. Vehicles has just released their 3rd record, "This Bluebird wants me Dead" on Naughty Dog Enterprises label and is available for purchase on itunes, Amazon, and CDbaby as well as all our live shows.
Kill Vargas
Kill Vargas
"Kill Vargas is punk of the pop variety, but you can hear a wide range of influences driving the music that keep it from feeling prepackaged or fake. I saw them at the LuLu Temple of Doom last month with the Serpent Overlord, Bastard Glow, and the Earth Dies Screaming and they definitely held their own. The vocals, more often than not, owe an obvious debt to Billie Joe Armstrong, but can easily veer off into Sex Pistols territory and beyond. The drums and bass bring it hard, but with Nirvana-esque intensity/volume drops that lull you back into a song only to burst back with a primitive garage rock stomp or classic punk rhythm. Kill Vargas talk a lot about riffs, and interestingly, the bass seems to take the load of the riffage responsibilities in the band. The guitar is definitely a presence but is sometimes meandering and thin, filling in the top end of the bands sonic space but only occasionally shining through. The most important thing I can tell you about Kill Vargas is that these boys are in it 100%. There is hardly a moment in the show where the teenage energy isn’t coming through not only in the music but in the gyrating, head banging, and general punk-rock-style-body-moving that brings to mind the on-stage antics of the Blind Shake. These dudes obviously care about their music – and the awesome songs they’re putting out make it easy to care right along with them."
