VAPID: Practically Dead: LP

May 21, 2010

A couple of years ago, I reviewed Vapid’s pretty good Do the Earthquake 7”, which was danceable riot grrl-sounding stuff. This LP, while it has some of the energy of that 7”, doesn’t have an LP’s worth of it. Some of the songs are kind of lulls. Though every song on here unquestionably comes from the same band (mostly courtesy of the vocalist), it kind of seems like Vapid doesn’t really filter out any of their material. There is probably enough good stuff here to fill out a 12”EP, but this just kinda lags as it is.
