David Vandervelde: New King of the Summer Jam

SC218

David Vandervelde is on an absolute songwriting tear right now, churning out these magma nuggets of summers present like a young man possessed. It’s as if the teenagers in Footloose locked into a deep bliss-metal and glam kick, and Vandervelde threw the bomb-ass after-prom kegger at his pad. Today, FADER premiered “Checkin’ Out My Baby,” the latest digital single from Vanderland. Now available via most any digital music retailer, “Checkin’ Out My Baby” is three and half minutes stomping, fuzzy pop, full of glammy falsetto and joyous shredding. With these new gems, FADER noted that Vandervelde “has managed to make music that evokes multiple decades, multiple drugs and all the good parts of being a cocky teenager.” We’re all in.
