a gritty, jarring, edgy, wiry blast of urgency - the calgary outfit draw from many of our favourite touchstones (early liars, jamc, interpol, gang of four) & deliver a slab of melodic noise that we've become obsessed with.

the album was born when Matt Flegel & bandmates Mike Wallace (both ex members of resident faves, Women), Scott Munro & Daniel Christiansen embarked on a 50-date tour that stretched virtually every limit imaginable. The repetition throughout ‘Viet Cong’ is frantic, pounding & thrilling yet equally hypnotizing & alluring. it's almost impossible to describe this record's intense brilliance but it's one of those rarities that gets better the further in you get & then you just have to go back for more! for fans of interpol, protomartyr or ought. "deep forays into demonic white noise, clanging post-punk & psychedelic/prog rock" 8/10 - nme, "Viet Cong have a brilliance so unstable, even they can’t quite control it" 8/10 - drowned in sound.

natasha recommends : "abrasive yet melodic post punk with psych-pop interludes from the remnants of another awesome calgary band, women".
