Straight outta Glasgow: Vital Idles

Post by brogues » Fri Dec 09, 2016 6:54 pm

Hey popkids!

Just a wee plug for a 7" that just came out on Not Unloved Records. Having lurked on this forum a bunch over the years, I think some of you will dig it. Here's the scoop:

Vital Idles are Jess, Nick, Matthew and Ruari (formerly of Night School/Slumberland heroes Golden Grrrls). In 2015 they leapt fully formed from the fertile intersection of Glasgow's visual art and music undergrounds. Their early live shows were a revelation, all ecstatic dancing and incisive tunes that betrayed an affection for the pioneering run of 7"s from the dawn of Rough Trade and the more pop slanted sounds from the worldwide DIY boom that followed. NUSONIC 001, the first release on Not Unloved Records, marks their vinyl debut following two stirring demo tapes and highlights a group equally adept at abrasive postpunk ("My Sentiments") and saucy pastoral pop ("The Garden"). Fans of Kleenex, Primetime and The Smiths are urged to take note!

Samples here:

You can buy it here or in UK indie shops (distro is by Cargo):

Best wishes,
brogues

Well spotted :) It's also a wee reference to the Not Unloved blog I do i.e. N(ot)U(nloved)SONIC :)
