The Vacant Lots

One of the most curious things about garage punk is the make-up of the scene; gazillions of bands in a global network, some finding moderate success in their own corners of the world. It’s very rare, however, that a band will leave that corner, each microcosm fitting into a larger community through a shared love of raw, emotive passion. Vermont duo The Vacant Lots are different though. They peddle snarling garage fuzz, psychedelic shimmer and a punk sensibility that sets them apart from so many of their would-be peers. They’ve already got themselves a tour support slot on The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s much- vaunted upcoming UK tour, and with their mesmerising debut album Departure dropping recently on Sonic Cathedral, they might be about to scale the heady heights of garage royalty.
