Local electro-rockers, Vinyl Thief left a little nugget on the doorstep of Vice Magazine’s Noisey, and Noisey wrote a story about it. The story goes like this. Electro-rockers from Nashville with a “funny name” turn out to be amazingly talented songwriters and musicians. Ah, yep, that’s the day to day around these parts, but it takes a serious stage presence and relentless spirit to have your light shine beyond. That’s exactly what Grayson Proctor, Logan Purdom, Sam English, and Andrew Broadway of Vinyl Thief have done with the title track “Stop Motion” from their upcoming EP, which is due out on February 4th.
We’ve long been fans of Vinyl Thief, and are happy to see that they are starting to get their due. Opening shows for the likes of The Joy Formidable, Youngblood Hawke, and Nashville’s Wild Cub could be one reason, but it also just may be that infectious music will find it’s way out to the ear of music lovers. So, while Noisey may discourage their readers from “cynically squinting” in a manner to make you “look like Larry David”, we’ll tell our readers to have a listen, crunk your face however you like, and get ready for more Vinyl Thief in the weeks to come. Road To Bonnaroo appearance, perhaps?
