Video of the Day: The Kyle Sowashes – I’m Busy

Love this band! And you should too! No one documents the ups and downs, the tribulations and challenges of everyday life like this band! The Kyle Sowashes from Columbus, Ohio have been making some great indie rock since 2005! Their latest video “I’m Busy” comes from the excellent “I Don’t Know What To Tell You” on Anyway Records. The video includes live footage filmed by Chris Young. Mr Kyle Sowash himself directed this epic piece of cinematography. Well done Kyle!

The Vapors Return After Almost 40 Years of Waiting!

LP-Cover-Large-768x768After a nearly 40 years wait — 39 years to be precise — we have a brand new album from The Vapors. This is not wishful thinking or a joke. The last album from one of the finest new wave groups was 1981’s Magnets. The hook-filled third album was released to the world this past Friday (May 15, 2020)!

And after listening to this record repeatedly, we have to say that it is indeed “12 chunks of pure Vapors goodness” as the band puts it on their website. These songs are catchy, melodic, and driving guitar riffs. The songs feature fresh sounding choruses that remind you of David Bowie while they make you want to sing along. The UK band that we all know from “Turning Japanese” can write some terrific indie pop.

Perhaps no one would have expected this record but following some brief touring a few years ago, the band re-caught the recording bug and put together this excellent collection. Let’s hope it is not another 40 years before the fourth record.
