So, Tom Vek disappears for five-plus years and now he’s showing up everywhere (not that I’m complaining). It’s good to make up for lost time. After dropping his sophomore album Leisure Seizure in June, he’s now showing up as a guest on new track for DJ Shadow. You could say Vek’s name is, uh, being plastered everywhere.
Warning Call comes off Shadow’s forthcoming album The Less You Know, The Better, due out Oct. 4 on Verve.
I wouldn’t have expected this collaboration (I guess Vek didn’t either), and the skittish, dance-y energy seems tailored to Vek’s style.
