Plague Vendor - By Night Vinyl LP
Plague Vendor By Night Vinyl LP
Plague Vendor's third album, By Night captures feelings of ruin and regeneration, of charisma and catastrophe and of slashing at the night with nothing but pure electricity. Where 2016's Bloodsweat ended with a to-be-continued moment and frontman Brandon Blaine shouting "Romance!" into the silence, By Night ends with a second of feedback and noise. It's a perfectly spent finish to an adrenaline rush of a record that asks, "What just happened?" The band spent 11 days locked in at Hollywood's legendary EastWest Studios (Brian Wilson, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop) with St Vincent producer John Congleton, with all visitors banned and all distraction eliminated.
When they met Congleton they connected intensely and instantly, more like co-conspirators than colleagues. With Congleton's precision production, they found their own way between the powerful-but-too-polished sound of right now and the engaging-but-aging reinterpretations of classic punk/rock albums of the '60s and '70s. The album is called By Night, because as Blaine says: "Nothing cool happens during the day."
