Valet - "Start it Somewhere"

Valet first formed in Minnesota back in 1998, back when describing a band as "plodding" was considered a high compliment. They released their first EP in 1999, and their final album in 2004. Now, a decade later, they are back with their first song since 2004. "Start it Somewhere" is a great reintroduction to the band. It's a mid-tempo plodder that never quite builds to the explosion it promises, but that's ok. It's a track filled with hope and promise about staying true to yourself while becoming the working drone you never quite expected. Not exactly one for the kids, but us old people need the occasional anthem, too.

The Truth Might Not Be Here, Valet's first release in 10 years, is due out in July on Guilt Ridden Pop. In the meantime, check out the video for "Start it Somewhere" below, and head on over to their Bandcamp for a free download.
