Vaguess, “Heavy Party Style”

Post Author:

Vaguess of Dana Point, CA released their I Hate Rock 'N Roll album last month on Refry Records, and with tracks like “I'm Bad” and “I'm Gonna Stab Myself”, a slice of sinister infects the otherwise straightforward lo-fi punk songs. Though that contribution is a hefty and fun listen, the real lightness in the band comes through in their B-side track “Heavy Party Style”, a song that was released on their KONY 2012 Throwaway EP. It's garage-rock at its purest, especially with the bass drum hit in its signature up-and-down way. The highlight, though, is the guitar that seems in search of a melody as it noodles all around, back and forth, and in circles. Try to keep up with the randomness and you'll find great exuberance behind the sound.
