John Vaderslice

Really not in a good place this evening. I don’t know but I am just extremely pissed off and can not bring myself out of it. It started with a request for a day off to be denied. I was being nice asking for it off but now that is no longer the case. So this was at the end of day today and then I sat in that annoying stop and go traffic. I was livid to say the least. I needed to vent though.

I enjoy John Vanderslice, quite a bit actually. I find his voice original and distinct and his music is familiar yet he continues to push and explore where it can take him. His new album Romanian Names was released back in May there were a few tracks which made it onto the pod and this is one of them…

    Jamie, I do hear similarities in their voices indeed. :-)

    Tara, I can kind of hear an 80’Depeche sound to some of his music. I first heard him at a live in store at Fingerprints. His last album was awesome!
