This is another tune from this months Spin Playlist, it was a good crop of songs this month. Tom Vek has been around for a while but hadn’t released any material in 6 years until he released Leisure Seizure earlier this year.
When I heard Aroused the name Tom Vek sounded oddly familiar but I couldn’t remember why. On further Wikipedia investigation it turns out that Tom performed on The O.C. at the Baitshop back in the day.
I was a huge fan of the O.C. but the best thing about that show was the soundtrack. The O.C. was the best play to be exposed to indie artists in the early 2000’s and I used to watch the episode then go online and see all the artists that were featured in that episode.
Anyways, you should check out Tom Vek as Leisure Seizure is a great album with a ton of good songs. Check out my two favourite tracks below, Aroused and A.P.O.L.O.G.Y. Both standout tracks on the album, which I highly suggest you pick up.
Aroused – Tom Vek
A.P.O.L.O.G.Y. – Tom Vek
