With a country-flecked take on garage, the last place you'd expect Vermilion Sands to originate from would be Italy but the group's pleasant femme fronted approach is proving that its not just great cold-wave and post-punk that's flowing from Italian shores. Large as Southwestern skies and brimming with heat-sick melancholy, the band's Miss My Gun is a welcomed second helping in the newly minted Sacred Bones EP series. The five tracks work their way from jangled acoustic touches to propulsive gallops, closing out with a cinematic touch of instrumental ennui. This is just a taste before the band unleashes a full length next year on Fat Possum but its a great early impression.
