Old Wives Tale to Play CD Release Party at the Vagabond This Friday

The Weston-based indie up-and-comers Old Wives' Tale are nothing if not professional -- the band's entire existence argues further for the end of record labels. Its web site and debut disc are snappily designed and art-directed by the band itself, with a high-gloss, New Wave style much like the band's music. The band calls its style "amphetamine music," an accurate label, as evidenced on its new Younger Limbs EP. 

Anchored on the hyperactive back-and-forth between brothers Jaime and Juan Felipe Valencia, the seven tracks are amped-up, high-focus, twitchy, and sweaty. This is late-night music -- churning synths, funky basslines, and DFA Records-style cowbell create a roiling, speed-paranoia vibe that still stays danceable. The album was recorded between Miami and the Valencias' native Bogota, but sounds piped directly in from downtown New York or east London -- first-class!
