This band are no newcomers, the Washington based trio Vandaveer releases their 5th full length album "The wild mercury" in February and it´s a good one too.
The music is pretty basic and built on beautiful harmonies, not to mention performed on real acoustic and electric instruments. Something that is rather rare in the world of popmusic where most producers are more comfortable around a computer than engineering analog sounds.
Vandaveer´s songs should be a catastrophe if they were completely digitalized, but fortunately they´re not. This is the real deal and I´m enjoying every second of it, I hear both traces of Stevie Nicks and America in this record but mostly contemporary indie rock.
Highlights : But enough on that for now, The final word
