Download Epic MP3 From London's Victor Talking Machine Here

London's Victor Talking Machine are due to drop their "Had Enough" E.P. on November 12 and here's the spacious and space-y "Penny Arcade" to tide you over until then.

Recalling the glory days of early Verve, or the mellower moments on Loop and Swervedriver records, "Penny Arcade" unfurls like a genuine freakout from an earlier era. At their best, Victor Talking Machine make me think of The Telescopes and that's not a bad thing.

There was a brief moment when this sort of guitar-rock was gaining traction in the U.K., somewhere after the C86 jingle-jangle days and before "Supersonic" made everyone want to be a Gallagher.

Victor Talking Machine recall that moment. They are neither shoegazers, nor baggy Britpoppers, but they represent the sort of British guitar rock that a lot of of us miss.

Put away your vinyl of Nowhere and spin this instead.

Victor Talking Machine are on tour now and their E.P. will be out in a few weeks.

For now, follow them on Facebook:
