Tom Vek: What the Heck?
Don't you just love how the music press feel the need to tell you exactly who a new artist sounds like?
Everything I've read about Tom Vek seems to include the line 'The British Beck?' or 'Tom Vek: The new Beck?'
If I was Tom Vek I would personally feel a bit pissed off. Don't get me wrong, Beck is a superb artist in my opinion; but Tom Vek's 'We Have Sound' is a fantastic CD and should be able to be just what it is, without being constantly compared to someone else's music.
Anyway... whatever the comparisons, I am playing it on constant repeat. Best track: Nothing But Green Lights.
