Somewhere between a soft-grooving Prince album (dig the falsetto!), an ambient techno-jazz jam and a Nick Drake bedroom-folk collection, the long-overdue return of Erik Appelwick’s pre-Tapes ‘n Tapes, post-Hopefuls vehicle Vicious Vicious sounds like the kind of record to go to bed to — for golden slumbers and/or that other thing people do in the bedroom. He and MVP bandmates Martin Dosh and James Buckley crafted one bona fide masterpiece, the slow-building “Hanging On,” and an entire album’s worth of sonic candy.
Bam! We’ll be playing with Gramma’s Boyfriend and All Tomorrow’s Petty. Gonna be cray.
