Viet Cong

From the remnants of gone, but not forgotten Calgary band Women comes Viet Cong.  After their promising "Cassette" EP on Mexican Summer earlier this year, my interest was piqued.  And if the first taste, "Continental Shelf," from their upcoming debut on Jagjaguwar, out early next year is any indication, we are in for a treat.  The song is noisy post-punk at its finest, but with a lo-fi undercurrent to keep things fuzzy.  There's also an unease and tension withing the whole thing that builds and builds, creating a sound that's all at once discordant and gorgeous.  Listen below.
