VAGUESS: Have a Good Summer: LP

Their name is hard to say, their tunes are hard not to love. Just when you think everything is spazzy and punk, they hit you with some rad highway melodies. There’s a slight twang to their songs; the guitars jangle like they’re playing all six strings instead of just the top two. Songs like “A Long Time” and “Nevermind” hit me right in the perfect mid-paced spot. In the same way the Replacements kept a punk edge to their music even after they grew up, Vaguess can satisfy both your fast and slow side. Have a good listen. –Ryan Nichols (Refry, [email protected])
