[LP] THE VACCINES have arrived IF YOU WANNA BLOW more IT-band smoke UP their hype balloon

well, i don’t wanna wake up in the mornin’, but i’ve got to face the day, that’s what all the friends i do not like as much as you say

♫ The Vaccines – If You Wanna (demo)

The Vaccines are possibly the most hyped band of the past year and their appropriately titled debut album, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines, is finally out in their home country of the UK and out soon in the US. If this is the first you are hearing of them then here are two demos that surfaced last year (just dodging the Web Sheriff a bit here). Rambunctious guitar music with some big hooks. It’s garage rock for stadium sized garages. The album is a fun affair with some catchy tunes and a brisk tempo that keeps my toes tapping. Besides being piped into every hip retail store I’ve been in recently, latest single “Post Break Up Sex” is another catchy gem for introducing yourself to these guys (Try not to let the bands enthusiasm get you too excited! Calm down guys). My personal favorite is probably “If You Wanna” and it’s mega-chorus while other highlights are “Under Your Thumb” and “Wetsuit.” Anyway, if you are like me and all the hype has piqued your interest then I highly suggest you listen to the album before buying it.It’s a solid disc but probably won’t be making any best-of lists around here. Still not sure what all the hype was for. It just sets expectations awkwardly high.

    I really enjoy the album myself. I can’t wait to see them live with Arctic Monkeys, I’m interested to see if they can bring it live. That’s how you know they are for real.

     something i like about this album is that it sounds like you are right there in  the garage with them during a band practice or jam session. however they recorded it (presumably everything mic’d and played live without much multi-tracking)… it really stitched their music together well. Only 2 songs heard and I really can’t wait for the release in just a couple weeks!
