Vehicle Blues - Changer

Earlier this month I wrote about Katrina Stonehart, an intriguing noise-pop act whose cassette single is out now on AMDISCS. And I also mentioned that Stonehart will release a split with Vehicle Blues later this summer.

Though I'm sure the split will be amazing, Vehicles Blues have their own release, Changer, out on Bridgetown that seems promising.

Like Stonehart, Vehicle Blues craft catchy and dreamy shoegaze tunes that are as retro as they are contemporary. Title track "Changer," for instance, bounces with fuzzed-out melodies and hushed vocals, echoing similar artists like the Jesus and Mary Chain or the Raveonettes.

If you're like me, you'll appreciate this group not only because the songs are just that good - but also because their sound both celebrates and reinvents the 80s/90s alternative rock aesthetic.
