Vince & His Lost Delegation – s/t EP

vince and his lost delegation ep sdz records 2013

VINCE & HIS LOST DELEGATION is the brainchild of Vince Posadzki. Hailing from France and coming from previous bands like The Fatals and Aqua Nebula Oscillator, this is his first true solo record, recorded in three days in Toulouse, France.

It’s all things psychedelic in these parts. From ripping fuzz-guitars (“Don’t Wanna Go Back There”) to trippy, reverb-drenched vocals (“I Hate You”), to soaring cosmic textures (“You Passed Slowly”), this EP from SDZ Records offers a little bit of everything. There’s a different approach to each of the six tracks included, but most come along with an invigorating bluesy edge whether it’s a spaced-out daze like “I Hate You”, or absolute brain-burners like “La Fin du Monde”.

Throughout the EP strobing and echoed vocals create the feeling like Posadzki is singing underwater or from the inside of a drippy cavern. You can hear this coming through in “Black Days” paired along with staggering guitar leads and wonky bass lines, eventually morphing into a breezy jam to wrap it up. Another track like “La Fin du Monde” brings in a slew of influences in under five minutes, at first sounding like late 60s/early 70s proto-metal (think Budgie), before changing gears to a (French) spoken-word midsection. This soon spills over into a heated guitar serenade, separated by triumphant, anthemic guitar blasts that go a long way to mix things up. “Try to See Around” closes the EP and keeps the psych rock consistency going until the last possible minute with some menacing, fuzzed-out guitars. This results in a collection of material that thrives on quality psychedelia, which only means you need to listen to these tracks below.
