Vicious Vicious features the talent of three local music mainstays: Erik Appelwick, Martin Dosh, and James Buckley. When not playing in a multitude of other projects, they reunite to record material, and the past few years have seen them hard at work at their latest self-titled effort. Releasing a self-titled album well into a band's career usually indicates a sort of reinvention of sound, and Vicious Vicious has certainly illustrated how flexible their creative direction can be.

Their newest release is a more soaring, experimental affair, featuring complex layers and melodies. The guys obviously wanted to try something challenging, and the result is the record we hold in our hands today, a collection of emotional statements about "stepping out and falling in love and getting all kinds of messed up" as they describe on their website.

Songs performed: "Jumpin' Fences," "After Everything," and "Hangin' On."
