ARTIST                      :      VIET CONG

GENRE                       :      ROCK

DATE OF RELEASED :      2015

You know that the album has a lot of promise when what you heard in the first song alone is quite fresh or new to your ear.  You cannot say that in terms of musical structure and treatment that Viet Cong’s “Newspaper Spoons” is very original.  In fact you heard this kind of musical style before.  What makes this band fresh is that it is quite rare at this time when technology is just at the tip of your fingers and yet this album sounds raw; full of rough edges instead of polished and well produced sounds.

Probably, this is intentional as when you have a band name like Viet Cong, listeners will expect a not run of the mill music regardless of any musical genre.  This is evident with the song titles; it will take an artistic band to have song titles like “Continental Shelf” and Newspaper Spoons.” It will take a band with depth to have their records sounds like soundtracks from epic sci –fi movies instead of doing rock songs peppered with bubblegum lyrics.

This album is worth your time and I give this record 3 stars out of 5 stars.
