VIET RUSE: Self-titled: CDEP

Probably the most technically accomplished bunch of musicians I’m reviewing this go-round, yet also paradoxically the most boring. (Isn’t that always the way?) I have no idea why they sent this to Razorcake—guys, there’s no way anybody here was going to give you a good review. If you’re into vaguely dancey/funkish tunes that sound like the song a cover band plays after they say, “Here’s a song we wrote,” then you might like this. I sure don’t.
