If you haven't heard of San Francisco's Vue, listen up. Since 2000, they've dropped two LPs on Sub Pop, an EP on Gold Standard, and most recently, their major label debut, the Babies Are For Petting EP on RCA. During that time, they've toured tirelessly, playing with the likes of The White Stripes, The Donnas, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. They were also the cover models for The FADER #14 (Winter 02/03) and have been compared to the likes of early Rolling Stones, Stooges, and The Doors. The Babies Are For Petting EP sees the band taking their music to the next level. They still have the old school rock and roll swagger to their sound, but this EP sees them making great strides musically, taking risks, and injecting a hip, modern vibe into their songs. Fans of older Vue material will instantly recognize the enriched confidence the band exudes today and will no doubt fall in love all over again, as I did. The only problem with this EP is that itís not a full length. I want more Vue!
