updated Viet Cong are re-releasing Cassette on Mexican Summer, and Oxygen Feed is finally back up on soundlcoud.
Guitars that adhere and abrade, but in a pleasurable way. Songs that are knotty, complex. Music with personality. Viet Cong contains two members (Matt Flegel and Mike Wallace) of the long departed and much-loved Women, so it’s no surprise about those guitars, that sound. “Oxygen Feed” in particular is like a slight continuation of the ideas in Women’s “Black Rice,” but turned and twisted, perhaps a little more more cheerful in a weird way. Viet Cong’s debut release, the mini-album “Cassette,” is challenging and strange and utterly enjoyable. Dig in.
