Oregon duo Vacant Fever have a new release, Kill Kill Kill out on March 6th.
We posted about the band last year and they went on to make a couple of our guest Top Tens at the end of the year so we were excited to learn of a new five track EP. They hate genres and being pigeon-holed and so we’ll avoid going down that route – not that it is easy anyway as they are an eclectic, sometimes experimental pair, but still with an eye and an ear for rhythms and melodies that insistently burrow deep inside your head and refuse to leave.
The title track is a perfect case in point. It is quite a departure from the majority of previous (excellent) album Heparin And Saline (still available free here), and for us recalls some of the classic work of bands like Wire or Gang Of Four. It is jerky, minimal and, best of all, genre-defying! It is also excellent.
The EP will be available as a limited edition 7″ Vinyl (500) with mp3 downloads and on iTunes.
