Description

Shoegaze legends The Veldt return with The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation EP, their first new recording in fifteen years. The band formed in the late 80's in Raleigh amongst the royalty of the legendary North Carolina music scene which included such acts as Superchunk, Archers of Loaf, The Connells, Dillon Fence, The dBs, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Ryan Adams and many more.

Initially signed to Capitol Records in 1989 and eventually finding their way to Mercury Records, The Veldt embarked on a musical journey that changed their lives. Soon, they were in the studio with dream-gaze guru Robin Guthrie, playing American concert halls with Cocteau Twins, and opening for The Jesus and Mary Chain in England. They worked with leading producers Lincoln Fong of Moose on their debut album Marigolds and Ray Schulman (Bjork, Sugarcubes, The Sundays) on Afrodisiac. The Veldt were a sensation from the start as they became a part of a movement of innovators, who came of musical age at a time when rhythmic rebels were reflective, gritty and wild. Their sound inspired future generations of alternative artists, including TV On the Radio.

The band reformed in 2016 and immediately received incredible enthusiasm upon their return. Their new EP, reissued here on Schoolkids Records, started to make the rounds in 2016 with a vinyl release via Leonard Skully Records, resulting in significant press attention, including an outstanding feature in The Guardian who wrote "the new songs invite paradoxical praise: serenely assaultive and vertiginously soothing."
