Veil Veil Vanish - Change In The Neon Light (2010)

Normally hearing things like, being the ôdarkest gem in the       
treasure chest of San Francisco's indie sceneö and having an      
album with the word "Neon Light" in it would have me reaching for 
the silence of ear plugs; but I figured I would reach out and     
find out a little more about this Metropolis Records-backed five  
piece from California with the completely inauspicious name, Veil 
Veil Vanish. Lucky for unsuspecting listeners, "Change In The     
Neon Light" combines just the right amount of gothic influenced   
post-punk and shoegaze indie to make a musical elixir that isn't  
to watered down and passive, as well as not being a sludgey,      
depression fest. 

You have to let this record settle in its seat before you start   
making judgments, because when Veil Veil Vanish gets comfortable, 
that is when a sort of magic happens. Ok, so it doesn't have      
explosive energy or mind bending lyrics, but they do manage to    
pull off a quirky and honest effort. Most of the record lays its  
foundation in an echoed and reverbed wall of sound, that          
amplifies everything from Kevin Tecon's vocals, to the            
punk-inspired guitars of Cameron Ray, as well as the 80's         
keyboards and effects from Justin Anastasi. It almost feels as if 
this album would feel right at home in a John Hughes movie, or at 
least certain montage sequences in The Breakfast Club.            
                                                                  
I will comment that the ethereal atmosphere is uncommonly thick   
and if you are looking for instrumentation that isn't effected by 
some form of resonance you will be sadly let down, as I witnessed 
in the albums trance-like closer, "Wilderness." Guitar focused    
songs, such as on ôPharmaceutical Party Platform,ö where the      
often monotone vocals take a back seat to active fretwork, is a   
shiny element of "Change In The Neon Light," even if the          
aforementioned vox and frivolous song titles might irritate a     
bit. It all feels a little bit over dramatic. Don't get me wrong, 
it's not something as ridiculous as Miss Derringer, but they both 
strive for an older time period. Whether it be the 80's in terms  
of their music, or the 30's when it comes to their album art.     
                                                                  
That being said, Veil Veil Vanish's 38 minute, 9 track, ethereal  
indie full-length, happens to be both classy and musically        
appealing. It can drown it self a little with tons of effects and 
phase pedals, but with a remarkable wall of sound, hints of       
addictive, stripped-down post-punk, and experimental guitars,     
they manage to make a believer out of me. So if atmosphere is one 
of your most important prerequisites before you listen to a new   
band, then "Change In The Neon Light" will be making a home in    
your collection very soon.
