The second Archers of Loaf release, Vee Vee, captures a band that takes an approach not unlike Pavement in spots ("Step into the Light") and sometimes like a less refined post-punk band. The vibrancy of "Harnessed in Slums," the mutated guitar attack of "Nevermind the Enemy," and the brief and violent "Nostalgia" spit forth a type of punk-influenced rock that's miles from the manicured pop preening of much 21st-century "punk.

Perhaps the easiest way to describe their follow-up recording, Vee Vee, is by calling.
On Vee Vee, the second full-length offering from the Chapel Hill indie innovators, the band deftly avoids anything even resembling a sophomore slump by returning with a kind of gnarly ferocity, which the quartet uses to great effect as they bang and bash their way through an album of beautifully misshapen and unpolished indie rock
