Richard Panic has been acting as my niche music guru and been exposing me to music I didn’t even know I love. One such instance is this British dude named Tom Vek who’s album We Have Sound comes out April 5th–next Monday–on Tummy Touch/Go Beat.
Don’t be surprised if in the not-so-distant future you start hearing the 23-year-old Londoner’s song “I Ain’t Saying My Goodbyes” burning up a dancefloor near you. (Music (for Robots) has the mp3 up on their site.)
One listen, and you’ll know why we’ve dubbed him the “One Man Bloc Party.” How do I know he’s soon to be a hot commoditiy? He’s set to play the hipper-than-hip “Trash” club night at The End in London on the night his record drops. Can you just sense the NME hovering ’round this one? You can check out his entire album on their site.
