Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album from the Portland, OR-based outfit. At its heart, While They Were Dancing is slow and atmospheric, breathing deeply with vast empty spaces underneath heart-in-hand lyrics and a humble delivery. The band is fond of describing the sounds alternately as Bummercore or Bleak Midwestern Soundscapes, but just when the listener is drawn in and seemingly transported to another time and place, the band brings them crashing back to earth in a sonic explosion of screaming guitars and feedback. The music feels at once nostalgic and timeless, all while remaining grounded in the present. The band Vacilando is slow and atmospheric. It breaths deeply with vast empty spaces and bleak Midwestern soundscapes over heart-in-hand lyrics and a humble delivery. Vacilando is a vehicle for the solo work of John Shepski, fined-tuned by the deft hands/ears of Juniana and Chad Lanning, and prettied up from time to time by Jason Montgomery .
