Streaming Sunday; The USA Out Of Vietnam- Crashing Diseases and Incurable Airplanes (2014)

The USA Out Of Vietnam is a weird name for a band, but it is a good setup for the music. It leaves the potential listener with the immediate impression that this Montreal band is going to be different, and the point is further driven home by the bass-ackward album title. The tag “dream pop” is the most appropriate description of the sound, which includes fifteen guest artists… I was on the fence about this album up until that last song. What respect I had gained for the band was destroyed by the vocals on the last song; cheesy and executed poorly.
In 2014 an easy measure of an album is if it would be a good purchase on vinyl, and this album doesn’t make that cut for me.
