Vinyl Williams - Lemniscate (2011)

this is one of my undercover records of 2011. actually, it reminds me quite a bit of Radiohead, especially the bass playing, but the musical reference points aren't quite the same. whereas RH crib influences from contemporary artists to shore up their sound (the Tarantinos of pop music), VW builds from the ground up, so the songs are a bit more organic and cohesive and somehow end up sounding fresher than KoL despite the absence of wobbly stuff. nothing sounds forced or uncomfortable and there's a luscious haze to everything, making for a really smooth listen that you can vibe to anytime, like if Wavves just chilled the fuck out for a second.
