Are the Vaselines indie-pop’s answer to Vashtyi Bunyan?
Like the cult folk singer, they’re about to release their third album in a career that’s been hugely influential but with long, long gaps.
Entitled V For Vaselines, the album comes out on September 29 and the first track to do the rounds ‘One Lost Year’ can be streamed and downloaded above. The artwork seems to be Prefab Sprout means Marlon Brando meets Steve McQueen (you’re going to have to google all that if you don’t get the references).
The album tracklisting is as follows:
1. High Tide Low Tide
2. The Lonely L.P.
3. Inky Lies
4. Crazy Lady
5. Single Spies
6. One Lost Year
7. Earth Is Speeding
8. False Heaven
9. Number One Crush
10. Last Half Hour
They have also announced three dates in Scotland and England to coincide with the album’s release:
29 September Caves, Edinburgh.
30 September Brudenell Social Club, Leeds.
1 October Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, London.
