Bio: "It's no easy task to create heavily layered music with experimental song structure and have it still appeal to the common music fan rocking out at their desk, but Vinny Vegas does so, and with gusto."
“Earnestness in popular music comes with risks attached. Not least of those risks involves communicating with listeners in ways that are immediately understandable. “Ogre Hands”—the flipside to Vinny Vegas’ 2010 single “Mallets”—is almost snarlingly earnest, a scrabbling trawl through the disappointments and resignations of adult life that suggests a more emo, less balladic take on Pearl Jam’s “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town.” The rest of the Baltimore band’s catalog is thematically similar, a roiling mélange of styles that congeals into a sort of avant dad-rock stew: a slightly off-kilter normal that doesn’t quite gel with the anarchic, nu-punk, and defiantly experimental sounds with which the City That Bleeds is often associated.”
