Vista Blue - Girl Who Can Curl
Anyone who regularly visits this blog will be familiar with Nashville power pop outfit Vista Blue. They've featured plenty of times over the last few years and they return today with a song from a new split ep they've released on their own Radiant Radish label in collaboration with The Zambonis.
Formed in 1991, The Zambonis always record songs about hockey whilst many of Vista Blue's are baseball themed, this time around though they're both taking on curling. The ep's called Songs About Curling and it's a celebration of the 2018 Winter Olympics. You can pre order the 7" vinyl here : http://radiantradish.storenvy.com/products/21526454-the-zambonis-vista-blue-songs-about-curling-winter-olympics-split-7-inc
Those who prefer digital should head this way..... https://wearevistablue.bandcamp.com/album/the-zambonis-vista-blue-olympic-curling-split
There's 2 songs from each band, The Zambonis take a laid back almost country approach with Sweep Me Over The Hogline whilst Curling Girl is not only the cutest girl in town but she likes both hockey and The Ramones. No wonder they love her! Vista Blue pick up the pace with the 60's smash hit that never was, Curling All Around The USA and they round off an excellent ep with the song you'll find below.
If there's any bands around at the moment that are catchier than Vista Blue, please let me know. This is Girl Who Can Curl....
