Vehicle Blues is Gabe Holcombe from Chicago. I can see this guy recording himself in a basement, or tucked into a corner behind a couch with a ratty and worn hand-knit blanket thrown over it, covering up the tatters and ripped edges. That’s what this music sounds like, existential, get me through, i’m gonna make it type noise jams.
“Punks on Transit” is the prettiest and most melodic of the songs i’ve heard. A simple drum machine loop anchors Holcombe’s pretty voice, which leads you through the short song like you’re in a dream. - Microphone Memory Emotion
