BJ & Migs L&L BAND OF THE WEEK: The Variety Hour

May 17, 2017


The Variety Hour from Tacoma WA nears their 10 year anniversary, releasing the Motivacancy EP on Swoon Records. Motivacancy marks TVH’s 4th release and second on Swoon Records. Robert Lomax (drums) and Rob Olsen (vocals, guitar, bass) offer swerving guitar anthems with swing-for-the-fence choruses bent through an alt-rock prism. Influences include the heady rock of Dinosaur Jr, shimmering-psych of Swervedriver and the left-field pop of Teenage Fanclub and Cheap Trick.

Motivacancy follows 2014’s well-received Exploded View EP, who’s single Loser Elite earned TVH airplay as Loud and Local Band of the Week on KISW, Seattle’s top market rock station. TVH were guests of The Spud Goodman Show and Grit Rock and were featured on national and international internet programs. TVH performed live with acts including Eric Blood, This Blinding Light, Season of Strangers, Motopony, The Purrs, Rose Windows, Trees and Timber and many more. Enjoy Motivacancy!
