8/10 Brian Staff review, 14 December 2006

The Van Pelt are a strange & beguiling proposition. As a fan of the Lapse, Chris Leo's subsequent band I felt I had to trace these strange, brittle roots back a little & was quite impressed by what I 'eard. A couple of lost tracks from the mid 90's have apeared on a 7" through Red Cars Go Faster. B-side 'The Swede's Down at the Beach' is spacious, downtempo minimal post hardcore with a great use of minor chords & fuzzy lo-fi feedback between atmospheric vocal led passages. These are songs that feature some seriously odd patches of de-tuned guitar mantra, most apparent on the A-side 'Same as Stone', a technique that seems to work brilliantly in all his bands. I can hear parallels with bands such as Yo La Tengo & Seam but with a monged out Sonic Youth/Rhys Chatham nod to minimalism, the songs having this kinda dreamy emo feel whilst being really individual & out of step with everything around. The true underground sound of NYC a decade ago Brown vinyl on Red Cars Go Faster
