Supremely West Coast, The Velvet Teen, my first favorite band. Their three previous releases where staples to my musical diet. After a long break, their new EP find them forging ahead.
Favorite track: No Star.
Bold, bloody music from Santa Rosa. "Cum Laude" changed my life and was one of my favorite records of the 00's. "No Star" is a strong return after some years off...I hear they're working on a new full length! Side note: listen to the drums on this joint!
The band's first release in years and their debut as a four piece, this EP shows the group in top form, with their loudest and most expressive work to date.
