The Vulcan Dub Squad – The New Designers


Published May 4, 2007

The other day, a guy came by and dropped a CD on us that he professed to have recorded in his basement. The Vulcan Dub Squad hail from Ontario, Canada and apparently this is their sixth release. There is neither much Vulcan nor dub here. This is radio friendly alternative rock, layered guitars and addictive melodies. It reminds you of Cure, Ride (anybody who remembers Ride get´s a free beer from me) and My Bloody Valentine. Their obligatory Myspace motto is: “Music for the connoisseur – not the consumer”. That says a lot. At times this is dreamy and shoegazing and at times it rocks moderately hard – but always melodic and interesting. There are a few tracks that really caught me, the nine minute long I Should Have Been There (I Know) is excellent as is Confidence, Man! This was a surprisingly good find, excellent indie for everyone. PH
