New Sounds: La Vice
It's never usually advisable for a new band to try their hands at a sound generally considered to be out- dated for over at least 5 years, but kudos to LA trio La Vice for trying to make it sound fresh on "It's A Nice Day To Die". Their Libertines/ Strokes indie- punk is raucaus and energetic, and yes, it sounds like it would be mental live. But what it falls well short of being is exciting, despite its consistently upbeat nature. The screaming of the the title lyrics and the incorporation of the indie- disco sound certainly don't help to make it sound any more fresh either. But nonetheless, have a listen to the thing and if you like it, you can grab a free download of it at RCRD LBL linked below.
