The TeleVibes

Show Alert: Gymshorts, The TeleVibes, and Randos at Dover Brickhouse

Come February 27th, Dover Brickhouse will be heated up by three premium local New England Psych acts. Gymshorts grabbed the #3 slot in our end of year poll with their scuzzy Surf-Punk. They’re being joined by The Televibes and Randos, from Massachusetts and New Hampshire respectively. The Televibes have a bright punchy sound with absurd amounts of reverb and delay on the vocals. When they all start shouting the chorus of their tune “Washed Up” it makes your head spin in the best way. And if the bands weren’t already trippy enough, there will be a old school liquid light show while the bands play. Check out the Brickhouse’s website for more details. - Paul Jordan Talbot

The TeleVibes prepare for surfing weather with "Washed Up"

The TeleVibes’ Washed Up is the perfect merger of garage and surf rock. You can picture sitting on a driveway in lawn chairs in July while the band plays “Today” behind you, or local skaters using “Let’s Go” to soundtrack their latest film. The album begins on a light note: "Gnar'd" is a (comparatively) easy listen, with its simple chord progression, flanger-aided guitar solo and super catchy chromatic hook. As the EP progresses, the vocals slowly become more processed and muffled, as if they’re being sung through a megaphone gradually being buried in the sand, until becoming barely intelligible on "Today" and "Let's Go." The effect, however, works to the band's advantage, turning the vocals into one more instrument amongst a sea of distorted and reverb-heavy guitars. If you’re ready to start building up your playlist for the summer of 2014, Washed Up is a good place to start. – Jake Reed
