VAPID: Do the Earthquake: 7"

Sep 27, 2008

This female-fronted Vancouver, B.C. band make this shit that’s playful, urgent, snotty, and super rad. Their sound is rather reminiscent of early riot grrrl and grunge on a punk tip. Because I can’t even pogo rhythmically, I typically don’t like songs suggesting that I do a dance—I still can’t walk like an Egyptian. But I find here the exception to the rule. The title track is total fun. I was spazzin’ out before the chorus even hit. The two tracks on the other side are just as good, if not better. Here’s the rub: only 312 of ‘em were made.
