SLCene Suggests: Wampire at The Garage

by on November 7, 2014


WAMPIRE, THE GARAGE, Friday, Nov. 7, 9 p.m., $tba

Wampire songwriting duo Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps didn’t take much time to rest after touring for about a solid year after the release of their debut album, Curiosity, last year. Rather than relaxing and basking in the attention that album brought to their surreal brand of pop-rock, they jumped right back into the studio and started working on a new set of songs with producer Jacob Portait (of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) in Brooklyn. The songs on their new album, Bazaar, are a natural extension of their first, blending some insistent hooks with some off-kilter riffs and nods toward old pop tropes. The duo added some new blood to the recording process in touring drummer Thomas Hoganson, who also has skills on piano and sax. The expanded studio lineup certainly served Wampire well on Bazaar, and a touring version of the band will no doubt bring even more to the table when the band plays The Garage.  Locals Color Animal and 90s Television are also on the bill.
