If you haven’t caught on by now, we are big fans of bands coming out of Nashville and Vinyl Thief is no exception. They will be joining fellow Nashville natives Wild Cub, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, and The Electric Hearts at the Young Giant + Maimed & Tamed CMJ showcase at Arlene’s Grocery on October 18. Vinyl Thief most recently released a 3-song EP entitled Rebel Hill back in March and they are already hard at work on their next studio album which is set to be released in early 2013. The electro-rockers have a sound that is not too dissimilar to that of Wild Cub with light, airy synths and catchy vocals that will certainly get you up out of your seat to dance.
Vinyl Thief has already garnered some attention from Paste and Deli Magazine as a band to watch out of Tennessee, and all of this before even releasing their first LP. We expect big things from Vinyl Thief and if you want to say that you saw them before they hit the big-time, then join us at Arlene’s on the 18th!
