Pre-Order: The Vacant Lots - Departure

Alan Vega protégés The Vacant Lots are a NYC-via-Vermont duo comprised of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. Their minimalist-yet-primitive rock’n’roll and sprawling psychedelic drones have seen them pick up international acclaim and go on to collaborate with an impressive roster of underground music royalty such as Vega, Anton Newcombe, Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3/Spectrum and Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500. 

Their 2014 debut ‘Departure’, originally released by Sonic Cathedral, (produced by Sonic Boom) was what kick-started it all and London imprint Fuzz Club are delighted to be reissuing the record, following a previous partnership with the band for a split 10” with Vega himself. On their debut, The Vacant Lots deliver a primal hit of darkly hypnotic rock’n’roll with a repetitive and utterly formidable proto-punk gusto – reflecting back on the album it’s pretty easy to see why the duo went on to become so revered.

Fuzz Club Records will be reissuing the album as a double LP and the D-side includes two amazing remixes from Alan Vega and Anton Newcombe.
