Luke Song 7"
"Gabe Holcombe, proprietor of the always stellar Lillerne Tapes, has been releasing music under his solo moniker, Vehicle Blues, for years now. After about twelve cassette releases on various labels, including split tapes with Katrina Stoneheart and Shivering Window, Chicago-based label Lake Paradise Records is releasing the first Vehicle Blues vinyl, a 7″ titled Luke Song. The eponymous single is proof that the time Holcombe has spent honing his bedroom-pop craft has definitely paid off — ”Luke Song” goes beyond shoegaze, to a realm where a single moment of nostalgia and longing is expertly drawn out and expanded upon, until it feels like time is almost standing perfectly still while the somewhat doleful vocals and reverb-laden guitar play on. Backed with two other tracks, “Waving Steps” and “4 Tues”, Luke Song is “tunes about friends, alive and dead” (to quote Vehicle Blues himself)." - Liz Pavlovic, Secret Decoder
