Expecting KC Spidle’s new band to sound like Dog Day is like expecting Dog Day to still sound the same without him. Neither does. Nor is BV much like Husband & Knife, KC’s lo-fi quieter side. Bad Vibrations is a different beast altogether. While there are some elements of each of his other projects, the music is much darker and heavier, like the songs were dunked in a vat of Moncton circa 1994. Especially the psychedelic sludgefest that is “Muddy Waters,” which is the drippiest track among a slew of garage-psych-rockers. Flying at a few knots shy of hyper-drive, Black Train
is wonderfully infectious, addictive and over way way too soon.
