Times New Viking: Stay Awake [EP]

Times New Viking
Stay Awake [EP]
Matador Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Our favorite lo-fi group from Columbus Ohio got restless and released a quick 11 minute noise racket affair in the Stay Awake EP. Once again the volume is up, the lyrics are fuzzy and the hiss is cranked to eleven but I must say we wouldn't want Times New Viking any other way. This EP is perfect - you get in - you jam - you get the hell out!

Key Track: "Pagan Eyes"

Band With Similar Fire: Guided By Voices
