new favorite album // Abe Vigoda : “Crush”

Abe Vigoda // “Crush” : 2010.09.20
post new wave
sounds like ice skating down empty city streets. snow leopards in foggy green jungles. candle-lit attic dance parties. light cycles speeding into suburban sunsets.
notes really digging the evolution this band has taken.
verdict a slow ice burn to excellence.

A couple of these noisy, lo-fi, LA post post-punk bands are doing some really exciting things with the over-saturated genre—these tracks by Abe Vigoda (top) and Wavves (above) respectively are great examples that I’m really enjoying.
