February 16, 2010 The Crown Vandals [shameless self-promotion, kinda]
All the fucking hipsters or whatever you call them in your respective country will be bumming this band pretty soon.
Well, with Grant getting the blog going again, I figured I might as well post again too! I’ve missed it – it’s been quite the hectic semester and it’s nice to take a break from all of this madness and post here for you guys.
So a few weeks back, I was asked by a friend from back home if I was interested in joining a band in Montreal, and I said “heck, why not?” seeing as I definitely miss the days of playing crazy music with Tracy Strangelove. A few days later I get an email with the link to the myspace, and man is it some fun music. It’s different this time around going into a band that’s pre-formed, but really cool because I get to kind of try to fit into a mold, yet still influence the overall sound of the group.
The music has elicited comparisons to neutral milk hotel and a whole host of other bands, but I’m proud to say that it’s a super unique group.
Download the EP for free off of the myspace and try to catch us live once we start touring…!
