Stuck On Repeat: Swimming Along In Violet Vector’s Stream

Jun 27th, 2007 // 6 Comments

violet.jpgA few months ago, we were tipped to the North Carolina group Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies; they’re a heavily populated indiepop outfit with a great ear for singalong choruses and big, booming drums, the type of band that, ten years ago, we would have spent many hours seeking out in the 7-inch aisles of our college town’s record shops. Today, we checked up on them via MySpace, and they apparently have a new EP coming out in about a month. It contains the song “Can You Dig It,” which originally caught our ear (in a sign of how much we’re anticipating this record, we’re reposting the song below), but be sure to go to the band’s MySpace for the newer track “Serva Ad Manum,” an adorable, hand-clap-propelled track that sounds like it was rescued from The Kelly Affair’s demo closet:

    God, this is fantastic. Thanks so much!
    I love handclaps, more songs should use them.

    Good stuff. Speaking of the Kelly Affair, does anybody have mp3s of “Sweet Talkin’ Candy Man” or “Look On Up At The Bottom”?

    Sounds like Pipettes meets Camera Obscura.
    Not bad at all.

    No one else is turned off by the use of the Louie Louie riff on that song “Tame Me Tiger?” Guitar is hard, but it’s also too easy.

    oh and @noamjamski: remember when we went drinking? This is the kind of music I’d fear writing.
