Here's what The Echo has to say about these new up-and-comers from Topanga Canyon:
"VUM began in 2008 as the songwriting duo Jennifer Pearl and Christopher Badger working in and out of the Secret Lodge in Topanga Canyon, CA. Partners in crime, and co-conspirators for this new throbbing noir heartbeat, the two tread a deceptively minimalist path. Their debut EP “Strange Attractor” manages to be the desert, the tropics, and “the streets” all at once. In 2011, VUM released their first full-length album, Night Sun, on Secret Lodge Recordings. Night Sun lead the listener further into the jungle-choked latitudes of distant locales and explored the dark side of psychic war, whilst becoming a favorite of the underground blogosphere and a staple on Henry Rollins KCRW radio show."
We're gonna have to agree with Henry Rollins on this one (and how can you not?) -- VUM is something worth seeing now rather than later! If you need any extra incentive, Neil will be spinning the tables beforehand, getting you nice an warmed up for what will be an awesome show! Check the full deets and give a listen to VUM track "The Incandescent Tiger" below!
