Viet Cong – Continental Shelf

One of the most talked about track this week is “Continental Shelf”. Deservedly so since Matt Flegel and Mike Wallace have under their relatively new moniker Viet Cong crafted a stunning new twist on the grainy, lo-fi sound that made their former band Women such a success. Compared to their first release – last year’s Cassette – the quality here is elevated in every possible way; just listen to how the magnificent lead guitar is buried deep in an ocean of grainy noise. And the vocals are just sublime.

Viet Cong’s self-titled debut album is well under way, and will be issued via Jagjaguwar sometime in the beginning of next year. Based on this track , as well as Flegel / Wallace musical history, this album should kick start the next year in an exciting way.
