David Vandervelde - "Nothin' No"

One of my first musical crushes of 2007 was David Vandervelde’s debut record, The Moonstation House Band. This was due in no small part because of the tremendous leadoff track, “Nothin’ No”. A sure-fire year end list maker, the song rides a huge, crunchy guitar riff and glam rock vocal, and acts as a paean to young lust and getting high. Put aside the obvious Marc Bolan influence and this song is every bit the electric warrior it aspires to be.

Word on the streets today was that Secretly Canadian, the label behind Vandervelde, will be issuing the song as a single, to be backed by three exclusive non-album tracks. The release will be followed by a tour of Europe, and then back to the U.S. for a long run of summer dates culminating in a performance at Lollapolooza.
