Viet Cong 'Cassette' (EP stream)
Published Sep 16, 2013Since Women's dissolution, the members of the Calgary band have gone on to form various projects, and this includes Viet Cong. The group features Matt Flegel and Mike Wallace from Women, along with Daniel Christiansen from Sharp Ends and Scott Munro from Lab Coast/Reuben and the Dark. Following a scattering of live shows, their debut EP is available now.
The six-song collection is labelled Cassette on Bandcamp, although the artwork (above) implies that it's self-titled. The songs bear some resemblance to Women, with sounds ranging from the atmospheric psych folk of "Static Wall" to the jangling haze of "Unconscious Melody," the garage-y bounce of "Throw It Away," the jagged experimentalism of "Structureless Design" and the moody sprawl of "Select Your Drone."
Check it out below, and peruse the band's busy North American tour schedule over on their Bandcamp page, where you can also buy the release for $5.
