LISTEN: Vandervelde’s “More Than You Can Feel”

May 3 Vandervelde will release a new digital single including the new retro-jammer “More Than You Can Feel” but you can sample the song today. RCRDLBL premiered the song this morning:

“Channeling Zuma-era Neil Young, mixed with the weary cocaine fanaticism of Marc Bolan (get a lot of that cowbell in the song’s hook! It’s the most melodic cowbell we’ve heard in…ever probably). The tremolo-drenched guitars are retro but massive, a nice foil to Vandervelde’s warbling tenor vocals, communicating that age-old pain of people everywhere: “I need you/All I need is you/More than you know.” A fairly straightforward sentiment that Vandervelde makes work with nothing more than sincerity and a few chords. And a lot of cowbell.”

MP3: Vandervelde “More Than You Can Feel”

Stay tuned for the official release on May 3 to hear the wonderfully boozy B-side “Beer” co-written with the late great Jay Bennett. Vandervelde also hits the road in May bringing new tracks from a forthcoming full-length to the stage for the first time. Check out the dates after the jump.
