Tracklist: Tom Vek - A Chore

The last time anyone else heard anything from Tom Vek we'd only just found out about the Arctic Monkeys, only people with a very keen ear to the ground knew Burial and we didn't yet know Kate Nash or Klaxons. How much the world changes in half a decade. Still, he's clearly got a sense of humour about it, as you'll see at the start of this clip. As for the rest of it, it's easy to forget his first flush ran roughly parallel with rather than as a reaction alongside the UK post-punk revival, and his way of developing out is to slow down the tense, choppy beats and rhythms underpinning his committed drawl.
