Label: PPM Records
Notes: 1st single from EP
Analysis: The Cali noise punk band Abe Vigoda, after a breakout year 2008, isn’t slowing down, with a new EP coming out. The ‘Don’t Lie’ video has the band on a road trip without any crazy hi-jinx or wacky misunderstandings like in most road trip movies. It’s all mountains, car singing and space comets – just like a real road trip. ‘I often find, that the clouds have a voice / the stars telling me / don’t lie‘ sings Michael Vidal, which probably explains the overlays of outer space over the highway footage. The only real melody on the surface actually, is Vidal’s voice, as the barrage of guitars and drums blend into the “noise” that makes up the noise punk genre. But you can pick up on the subtleties of the rhythm the closer you listen. The band is sort of growing on me, as I never got into Skeleton, but I plan on giving Reviver a fair shake.
