None of the Vitas' songs are longer than two minutes

Posted By on Mon, Oct 24, 2016 at 9:29 AM

Need a jolt to your Monday morning? We suggest checking out (and even purchasing) the Vitas' debut statement, nine urgent and excellent songs recorded by Fred Thomas in June in Ann Arbor and released two months ago today on bandcamp. We are pretty sure there are cassette tapes, too — check your local shop.


The band is a Detroit supergroup of sorts, composed of Maia Asshaq on vocals, Claire Cirocco on bass, Shelley Salant on guitar, Megan Stockton on drums, and Emily Roll on sax (not on these recordings though, which were made days into the Vitas' existence). The group has been together for less than one year, as we understand it. They've already played one high profile out of town gig, at Silent Barn in Brooklyn at the end of August.
