#16 of 2008: Times New Viking - Rip It Off

Thirty-Two Words: The band employs just five instruments: drums, guitar, keyboards, and tape hiss. That's the Times New Viking Sound. Hooks-a-plenty and boy/girl vocals remind you of a naiveté not heard since early-nineties Olympia.

The Moment of Truth:
The opening chords of the album proved that TNV would not abandon their trademark tape hiss just because they joined the slick Matador crowd.

Killer to Filler Ratio: 3:1
