[FANGING OUT] Six years ago, the last band anyone would’ve pegged to make it big outside of Portland might have been Wampire. It’s not that the band, made up of longtime friends Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps, didn’t possess the chops to take its music to a broader audience. They just didn’t seem to give a shit. Curiosity, Wampire’s 2013 debut for respected indie Polyvinyl Records, is the sound of a band finally getting serious with itself. Pulsing with new-wave grooves, surfy guitars, psychedelic organ and a wealth of murky hooks, the record recasts the group as a sort of shroomed-out Strokes. Released last May, the album made admirers of Spin and Rolling Stone, not to mention former MTV VJ John Norris. Don’t worry, though: Even though they’ve broken through nationally, Tinder and Phipps aren’t above writing songs about getting high in graveyards. Only now they know someone outside their basement may actually hear it.
