LISTEN! to Viet Cong Bang the Gong Glum on “Silhouettes” LISTEN! to Viet Cong Bang the Gong Glum on “Silhouettes”

You know, I was just thinking that I was failing to hold up my end of the cold winter bargain by inundating my home brain with all manner of wanking art punk SoCal bonnets from the bygone days of skinhead bowling and double nickels diming down so I am pleased as a black fly in egg nog to share the newest stomp of uncertain gloom from Alberta’s most dangerous haircut, Viet Cong. It’s called “Silhouettes” and it’s the next step in revelation culled from their upcoming eponymous LP (out 1/20 on Jagjagwuar [Flemish Eye in Canada]). It’s disaffected, emphatic, referential and can be streamed in that side bar to perfectly accentuate the bitter cold of the Eastern Seaboard on any given Monday. Get hip to the bum out. Below is their (NSFWish) video for “Continental Shelf” and all known upcoming tourdates. Rockit.
