I love my bloggy friends. Without them I would never have found out about the craziness that is Velvet Davenport— straight outta Minneapolis. The music they make is tripadelic, either that or it’s complete straight edge nerd stuff. I can’t really tell yet.

The music of V.D. is classic- shakes and strums, the sounds of bubbles and squeals, etc. It’s almost like the softest Velvet you can imagine.

Thanks to Naturalismo and Weekly Tape Deck. Duuudes!

The band is doing a collaboration release with Ariel Pink– out soon on SHDWPLY. And they are giving a tape away. Check out the track, “Lemon,” below. See friend blogs for the collab w/ A.P.
