Viet Cong (2015)

Calgary, AB

Quite possibly the hype band of 2015, and with good reason: Viet Cong’s self-titled debut is a thing of mythology and legend, a seven-track opus that is gratifying, rewarding, terrifying, subversive and decisive. Already, they’re cementing Calgary as an art-punk haven, a city with gleaming skyscrapers and a hopeful, honest underground.
