Random Artist of the Week, 4/20

Tom Vek
I just bought Tom Vek's first CD (We Have Sound) used this week. I had heard C-C (You Set The Fire In Me) a few times in random places, and finally the song got stuck in my head. I went straight to my local record store (Shake It) and picked it up like some sort of zombie. Nonetheless, the CD is great. A mix of LCD Soundsystem, Beck and the Talking Heads (if that's possible), but also very original. As most of his reviews point out, this guy's got great potential. I beg of you to check it out.

Key song(s): The one-two punch of "C-C " and "I Ain't Saying My Goodbyes." These songs make up for any shortcomings on "We Have Sound." "The Lower The Sun" is a highlight too...
