[UGLY AMERICANS] Brooklyn’s Vaz will never be popular. Its driving noise rock is just too far out of time. Spawned from the ashes of Minneapolis crushers Hammerhead, Vaz kept on trucking as a duo, ignoring modern music trends. Paul Erickson’s vocals revel in the hopelessness of ’80s hardcore, belied by the fact that he’s still here, slugging it out in the trenches. Drummer Jeff Moordian remains a revelation, yet has similarly matured into a more song-oriented player. The brand new Vaz album, Visiting Hours, drops the day before the show and finds the band inflated to a trio. This is end-time music with hooks and heart. Wipers fans would do well to give these guys a shot.
