Les Vinyl Get Jiggy With It

In case you missed the band’s awesome show in the Apple Store last week (in which case, shame on you), NY App-man extraordinaire, Craig Caruso, was on hand taking video.

FYI, Craig is currently in talks with us to create a Les Vinyl App for iPhones (you hip kids do like the iPhones, right?). So more to come on that as it develops.

Here is the clip very en vogue with most Les Vinyl shows: an impromptu bursting into a 90’s pop and/or rap song (specifically during “Sneezy”).

In other Les Vinyl news, you can now grab the Nafia Mail EP here on Bandcamp to get it for FREE with bonus cover art!

Thanks to all the awesome people who have signed-up for our mailing list! We promise to not abuse the power of your trust and only send you emails sparingly and in a timely fashion. In exchange we promise to keep you in our loop and provide you with more cool stuff in the future like more free music and whatnot.

Next, the awesome people over at the awesome club, Local 269, want Les Vinyl back for a THIRD time in a month! We really must be doing something right (or horribly, horribly wrong). The show is short-notice though, as in tomorrow night! So come support a great band and a great club and kick-off your weekend with Les Vinyl.

Also, our friends Steve Sachs, Matt Wilson, and VF_DOS_ have new musical releases/websites up. They support us, so you go support them.

Keep it fresh, ya’ll!

Les Vinyl Sidebar In This Week’s SI Advance

Local Journalist and music-beat reporter for the Staten Island Advance, Ben Johnson, recently wrote a nice sidebar to his main article on Ingrid Michaelson playing Snug Harbor March 6th (Les Vinyl will be the opening act). Buy your tickets here.

It’s safe to say the quartet, led by the humorous but far-from-sloppy Casey Jost, leans on some familiar indie rock ideas, like two-chord chorus hooks and danceable beats. But rhythm guitarist Jenny Miller, bassist Mike Carlo, and drummer Pat Given have something that might not be immediately noticed.

The songs themselves, perhaps best showcased in the cut “Far From New,” sound simple and open to the point of nearing naiveté, but are so well-crafted that you know they’re anything but. The tunes bounce and tumble, all under lyrics delivered effortlessly but remembered for the possibility of yet-un-plumbed depth.

Read the whole article here.
