Label: Self-released, 2016
This is a confession: I have been lazy to update this blog. Don't need to mention a reason, being lazy is being lazy. However, during my lazy times, I didn't put myself away from looking for new music. I found some of great musics, wanted to write it down, but, as I said, I was lazy, and those great musics were just ended up for my ears, not shared. One of them was Varsity.
I found their bandcamp in the beginning of this year. So many times I told myself I should write them down. And one month ago, it happened again. That time I ensured my self that it was a go. I would move my lazy ass and write about this Chicago band. So here it is. Ok it is one month late, but still, here it is.
This band is a mix of pop, rock, psychedelic, very rooty yet at the same time very poppy. I am not sure what that means, but let's say it's my version of "damn interesting", "damn good", and others alike. They stole my attention since 'Sad, Sad, Sad'. Another interesting thing about them is they always come up with double single EP. Well, not always (they had more songs in their earlier releases), but lately they do. It is quite a benefit for digital download - your download will be faster due to its smaller size material - especially the free one. Yes, they release their songs on "Name Your Price" mode.
Musically, I figured them out as 90s pop woman-vocal band meet 60s garage rock music. But the other time, I think that I'm just narrowing their music. Because in fact, Varsity is more that it. Indie pop, indie rock, you name it. Or, to be more accurate, just check them out.
