THE VAN PELT – Self titled EP
May 11, 2010
Believe it or not I only really heard The Van Pelt last month on the recomendation of a friend. I recall there was something of a fuss about this band and how great they were circa 97/98, at that point I was well into Gravity and Ebulltion releases… oh well. The Van Pelt are in some way post hardcore’s answer to Seam, the tight powerful drumming compliments their meandering brand of indie rock. The stream of consciouness vocals of Chris Leo (Native Nod) are more spoken/shouted than sung. The link below is to the ‘Speeding Train’ EP released on Art Monk Construction in 1997. If you like that I give high praise to the two albums, they also played a refomation gig last year watch it here.
