Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TOM VEK

We Have Sound

2005-12-10

Vek is a new artist who through his teenage years experimented with electronica. His work evolved into rock with hints of electronica, the main residual effect being he records everything on his own. His one man band is a playful integration of rock and synthesized sounds which ends up sounding quite fresh. He has been likened to Beck, and a “cross between the Talking Heads and the Chemical Brothers,” although neither comparison is quite accurate. AAA radio stations have been playing tracks 1,3,and 6. -Pete
