Editors’ Notes

For a new surprise lo-fi warriors Times New Viking headed into a real studio and found a way to retain just enough murk to keep the mystique. “Ever Falling In Love” is nearly tender with singer Beth Murphy rising above the clanging din for something approaching sensitivity. Essentially the band has moved from a noise band to a garage band. The guitars are still plenty dirty, the drums still pound in the background and the vocals, harmonies and all, merge in a delicious yawp that retains its independent spirit as it conjures up memories of those old Pebbles collections of obscure garage bands. A rambunctious organ adds a pressure-packed melody to “F**k Her Tears” and Cramps-like rhythms and guitar lines rise above the din of “Somebody’s Slave.” “It’s a Culture” drives upwards with a ‘70s punk tempo and “California Roll” sounds like a beach party anthem designed to break the lease. “Don’t Go to Liverpool” is redolent of plenty of DIY indie-rock, Olympia, Washington style. A trace of Beat Happening, a splash of Modern Lovers, perhaps, but always Times New Viking finding their way out of the cave and into the light.

Customer Reviews

Times New Viking Goes In For The Kill

This album is pure and honest jack and jill lo-fi heaven. Thank you TNV for staying raw and for being sexy. Look no further for the finest album of 2011. Times New Viking is going in for the kill, and there taking out you cookie cutter- half assed musical acts that couldn't inspire a fart out of me. TNV makes brilliant music through honesty and simplicity and I believe they are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

Feels Just as Good

At the very least, this album is cathartic; I listened to a couple of their other albums before this one, and the cleanliness in comparison is tangible. But thats not to say the trio's lost their charm, after the initial joy of hearing the instruments and the singers as separate entities, I started really listening to their songs, and they sounded just as nonchalant, abrupt and sincere as in the past. The songs just sound fresher, but no less great than the four albums+ worth of music that was starting to get just a little stale.

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,...
