iTunes Editors’ Notes

Don’t adjust your set. It’s supposed to sound like this. Columbus, Ohio’s Times New Viking love a lo-fi sound and that extra layer of grime is all part of their appeal. The sound is often so overloaded that the instruments are literally fighting for sonic space, and still the vocals somehow overcome this molten mess. “Martin Luther King Day” practically sounds as if the band has gone pop with its catchy vocal brigade. However, things are right back to pure garage-punk rock with “I Smell Bubblegum” where the band’s primitivism works as everything goes into overdrive. It’s the sound of analog recording taken to its extreme with every needle going into the red. (Judging by the primitive sound, it’s highly likely that their recording equipment doesn’t come with meters to gauge sound input.) The songs are virtually interchangeable — though, on close listen, it is obvious that there are distinct melodies, lyrics and guitar lines happening. Choosing personal favorites can be challenging, but the title track, the mock blues of “Little World” and the piano-driven smooth pop of “Half Day In Hell” are worthy places to start.

Customer Reviews

What a wonderful album the whole family can enjoy!!!

The Times New Viking are a wonderful christian barber shop quartet coming to us all the way from Nova Scotia. They consist of Johan Times, Hanns New, and the Viking twins, Geoff and Sid. Their sound is primarily accordion and flute. They sing songs about their homeland and tales of the sea. They hit the No-wave folk scene about seven years ago when they used to dress in celtish schoolgirl style drag. They have since changed their style and are now going with a more Kiss meets Hee-Haw type feel complete with pyro. Johan was going to call the group Times New Roman but the Roman quads wanted too much creative freedom so on the night of the almost devestating split Johan met the Viking twins at a seaside brothel and history was made. The Times' arch rivals are the Hell Vette Ticas.

OK, OK enough silliness, this is a the cream of the crop when it comes to the whole new No-Wave Scene. Noise aside these people know how to write some gorgeous tunes! Enjoy

Gorgeous Lo-Fi

Wonderful songs, and as far recording quality, this sounds like it's playing on the most lovely broken radio ever. It's warm, it's distorted and scummy, and there's just enough room to sleep in. This is maybe TNV's best album, and that's saying a lot.

Love these guys!

So I stumbled upon TNV about a month ago and cant get enough. This album along with "rip it off" are my favs. The lo-fi recordings are done perfectly and no matter what the guy above me says, the production value is top notch and whoever recorded this actually worked to get such an amazing sound.

I love to listen to this album strictly on headphones while i'm chilling on my bed with my dog.

"Those days" is my favorite track

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Columbus, OH

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Much like Guided by Voices, Times New Viking are a noisy, lo-fi indie rock band from Ohio who made the leap from the long-running indie Siltbreeze Records to the higher-profile Matador label. Unlike Guided by Voices, whose hissy, distortion-heavy sound masked a knack for traditional '60s-influenced pop hooks and surreal lyrical wordplay,...
