Wampire | The Hearse
Polyvinyl Record Co. posted a new song, “The Hearse”, from Portland outfit Wampire (duo Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps). It’s a single from off their upcoming album, “Curiosity”, due out in May. The song also appears as a limited-edition 7-inch, which you can order at Polyvinyl. (With shipping date on Feb. 22.) The song opens with a faux type of organ, like the entrance music to a Universal classics monsters film. But then it kick into gear with a quick-footed rhythm and a rocking 80s synth. Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jake Portrait produced the band’s soon-to-be-released debut. You can follow the group at facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
