Yeah, I see you glaring at that band name and song title, assumptions popping up in your head like oh-so-many Whack-A-Moles. Well sorry to stop the groans early but Super VHS’ “Midnight MTV” doesn’t sound much like what one would expect a band called Super VHS with a song called “Midnight MTV” to make. It actually sounds pretty close to lo-fi indie pop, slightly muffled vocals hanging out with easy guitar stumming and some jaunty percussion. It would all just be pleasant if it weren’t for SUPER VHS’ trick of also including an at-time slightly out-of-tune-sounding guitar in the mix as well – it showers “Midnight MTV” in a rush of weirdness that makes the short track very interesting. Listen below.
Also worth taking a listen to is the group’s “Muscle Disco.” It…sounds a bit closer to what you would expect something called Super VHS to sound like, but don’t break out the genre tags yet!
