You can feel the friction that lies between VLMA’s open aired dynamics and its tense verbosity that explicitly contemplates social oppressiveness.
Their anti-social demeanor and raw primitiveness makes this band a raucous gem in the Fleeting Youth roster. On “Trendblender,” they can use jangle pop as a weapon, and it is brilliant. And not in a Redd Kross kind of way. More like Redd Kross being assaulted by some really loud alt rock basement sonics. The song is loud and rambunctious lying outside the realm of pretty much what anyone else is doing. If you can get it in your head, it won’t go away. Good luck in watching this video because your eyes will not focus from all the rocking out you will be doing.
Look for a new seven inch out in April. A little over a year ago, we looked at VLMA’s self-titled release.
