-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers! New week, new Pick: from Salvador, Brazil, Van der Vous! Their new album La Fuga, is out via Bandcamp.
Like fellow Brazilians Boogarins, Van der Vous consistently show their appreciation for the tricks and sounds of long-ago, AND their record collections may be bigger than their neighboring fellow psych' n' rollers! They certainly have a swagger about them and it comes through the music, loud and clear. While adding nothing new to the genre we love so much it's difficult -for me, not to appreciate and indeed applaud, the effort. Try the jangle and punch of opener "What You Need":
Or, "I Get High", remixed from an earlier single release:
I have high hopes for the future of this band. I hope you do, too. GO Van der Vous!
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every other Thursday from 11pm to 1 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
