The Vaccines: First Demo Recording Sessions

The Vaccines
First Demo Recording Sessions

The Vaccines, out of the Portland, OR area; have written some really great and enjoyable music which could accompany any 80's John Hughes film or become the perfect background music for any stoner party. The songs have everything a good song should have: a great melody, good lyrics, and a nice hook. My personal favorites would have to be "Mt. Vernon" which is by far their 'hard' song, "Safer In The Sun, pt 2" which is the most fun and reminds me of Steve Miller Band a bit, there is also the track "Keep Me Late." Listening to it made me want to just make sweet spooning love all night....really it did. Though I was never able to actually hear any of their actual CD's, listening only to the tracks on their site; if I had to give them an overall sound I would have to say Country-Rock. This is actually a good genre if you give it a chance (Don't Be Afraid Of The Country Part); Old 97s were country-rock and so was Ryan Adams while in Whiskeytown.

In the end I give them 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5)

Seattle Sound Magazine

I've found a great new zine that specializes in Seattle music. It's called "Seattle Sound". I found it at the Redmond Fred Meyers, but I would imagine that you could find this at any good newsstand, or CD store. This is its first issue. Death Cab for Cutie are on the cover.

Please buy this magazine and help support the Seattle music scene, and those who help promote it.
