Bad Vibrations

Black Train (Brotherhood)


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.
