Vision Valley

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Capitol

The Vines’ wild-boy frontman Craig Nicholls was recently diagnosed as mildly autistic, but Vision Valley, a sucker-punching CD — 31 minutes, no song topping 2:45 except for the psych-pop closer — shows his musical mind unimpaired. He’s digested the Nirvana influences a bit more, and alongside the glammy fops defining modern rock at the moment, his feral, melodic garage punk is refreshing. Extra points for a radio single titled ”Don’t Listen to the Radio.”
