"The Vindicator LP" (Kindling Music, 2006)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Now, 3 years since parting ways with seminal roots-rocker MIKE PLUME, THE POPULARS release their first album, the vindicator LP. Produced by Thomas Ryder Payne, the vindicator LP is the record THE POPS have dreamed of making. A rock album like no other- the vindicator LP, sounds as sci-fi as it does lo-fi. Drenched in furious guitar, spine-tingling feedback, synth pads and digital noise, the album is inexplicably riddled with hooks and melody-and showcases a young band full of veterans. THE POPS have defined their band, their sound and their lives in a 12 song volume. The record starts with an invitation to the complacent that dare to believe otherwise – “Hurry Up and Die”. From the moment the track starts-until it's blazing finish-THE POPS intent is clear. Musical revolution. the vindicator LP, is our defining moment as musicians" Meck explains. "We have vindicated ourselves- proven our worth as artists to ourselves."
