Los-Angeles based post-punk outfit DTCV (formerly Détective) was formed in March 2012 by James Greer (ex-Guided By Voices), Guylaine Vivarat (ex-Useless Keys, Tennis System) and Chris Dunn (ex-Chicago – the city). The GBV connection is tight here, as Greer not only played in the band but actually wrote the book on them (Guided by Voices: A Brief History: Twenty-One Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll) and had his former bandmate Robert Pollard provide the artwork for DTCV’s latest release. The musical influence is there, but thanks to Vivarat’s sweet vocal presence, the result lands closer to Pixies territory.

Featured song: “Hyperdoxxing at Dowager Inn”
