The world is FUCKED.
He lives! Look forward to hearing the track
Rumours someone was sending round a new Tom Vek album to record companies a few years ago but it was deemed to 'experimental' for them and they didn't want to release it?
if we're thinking of the same thing, then even at the time it was known to be a parody, half the song titles were clearly jokes or pisstakes of his existing songs.
i just downloaded that zip file fyi, it has 31 tracks, including 'CC You Smell The Tulips', 'I Am Tom Vek, Hear Me Roar', 'Green Green Tea' parts 1 to 4 and about three Christmas songs.
oh, and a word doc that includes a drawing in MS paint of some shoes, the words TOM VEK and a smiling sun.
I've got a feeling we'll hear more than a few echoes of that album on the new one.
Definitely very intriguing stuff.
If this is true, then thats fucking amazing.
But damnit, it means that I'll have to endure Zane Lowe's show to hear it :(
don't suppose anyone was actually listening to zane lowe to confirm this
Album "Leisure Seizure" to follow later in the year.
never thought I'd see the day
calm down. People seem to fall for a myth that Tom Vek was much cop the first time round, people only seem to herald him for his disapearance. Nothing But Green Lights was a brilliant track, fair play, but half of the album was a right load of shite. I have absolutely no expectations for this album whatsoever.
no denying a lot of people seem to be caught up in the myth of Vek and he hindsight is showering this album with more praise then it perhaps deserved as a result... but I'm willing to admit I'm incredibly excited for the very same reason, I wan't to know what he's been up to for 6 years.
will always hold at least some interest for me.
Actually, probably more interest than a really great album with no follow-up. If, say, Bon Iver never releases anything else I'll still have a great album to enjoy, whereas with Vek or someone like him you're just left with unfulfilled promise
sorry murrt, but you can go and listen to fucking Beady Eye if you like...
Nothing and no one alone sounds like Tom Vek.
Try and make some justifcation as why you perceive half of the album to be terrible to your ears... Clegnut.
The dance-led basslines are the most impressive part of We Have Sound, don't get me wrong, I see the potential, sonically it's at times brilliant, but I just can't get my head around the hysteria that surrounds his disappearance. I was trolling last night, fo sho, but that's not to say there wasn't grains of truth in there. How anyone can listen to the out-of-tune wails on A Little Word In Your Ear and *really* enjoy it is beyond me. There was potential there, yes, but half of the effort sounded clumsy. There's been much better indie/electro crossover albums in the past, that don't get the same level of praise that in Vek's case, is not entirely deserved.
but Little Word is easily my favourite Vek song. Not sure what to make of that ...
We Have Sound is one of my favourite albums ever.
19 year old Gabriel is beaming
to Tom Vek.
Here's hoping there's "Nothing But Green Lights" "On The Road" to his new album.
Can't wait to see him live, I hope "That Can Be Arranged".
shut the fuck up
I see what you've done there.
You're lampooning me.
for this long? I thought he'd given up being a rock star.
