VanRock1: “Every 1’s a Winner, Baby”

van rock playlist album covers

Hell yeah, man. This playlist rocks. Lots of indie gold. Some new tracks like Pressure from Flasher, a post-punk band out of Washington D.C. Also on the playlist is Kurt Vile’s One Trick Ponies, of his 2018 release, Bottle It In (story of my life) ~ great track. Blue from Far Caspian continues the playlist into melodic contemplation, before switching up with a dreamy islandish vibe, that borders Endless-Summer surf guitar vibes with a far east sound with, with Khruangbin’s track called Khuda Bhi Aasman.

The second half of the playlist returns to indie rock roots with Ten Fe’s Single No Return, then heads into a grittier track with On The Move by The Record Company. Ferus Gallery by Allah-Las briefly returns us to that surf rock far-east guitar sounds, before we finish off with a few tracks that remind me of the good old days of classic rock ~ reborn through Greta Van Fleet and The Nude Party (Don’t miss this track! Great video too.). What a ride!
