VANIISH (today)

There's a record out today by VANIISH, a dark San Francisco project from Wax Idols member Keven Tecon (featuring fellow Wax Idol Amy Rosenoff and produced by Monte Vallier, who worked on 2013's Discipline and Desire). As expected, Memory Work draws influence from the cold wave and new romantic stuff of the '80s, but then, that said, it's also somehow very much of its time. The obvious comparison is the early 4AD lineup, but with shoegaze and goth having made comebacks a few years ago, this will also hold up to those who liked Prosaics or the first Mary Onettes record.

Purchase Memory Work.
