The Vapor Caves are from Austin, and for the Star Creature offshoot, Tug Boat Editions, they deliver a sugar-coated cover version of the Rah Band's 1983's electrofunk classic "Message From The Stars". Adding their own technicoloured palette, with woozy keys and squelchy bass working in the perfect boogie-based interplay, vocalist Yadira Brown is on hand to offer her own sweet interpretation. It's a truly sterling effort which sees this British boogie bomb flown stateside!
The instrumental can't be ignored either, seeing as it soars through the cosmos on skilled playing, maxing out the guitar shops and intergalactic fx.
Another essential addition to the Tugboat discography. Highly recommended!
