Veldt ‘Universe Boat’ (1996). by CultureOfNone on March 12, 2010. I couldn’t help being a Veldt fan from the very start – early press described the Chavis brothers driving a jeep under rural North Carolina skies, their in-dash mixtape jubilantly positioning Cocteau Twins next to Public Enemy. It was the delirious pre-grunge era, and hip hop beats & shoegaze seemed a brilliant fusion of audio textures. Veldt were initially somewhat of a triumph of idea over product. Their first disc (Marigolds) featured the brilliant CCCP, but overall was not amazing. Still, I stuck with the band over the years and bought some promo CDs (for non-album tracks & interviews) and the Soul In a Jar vinyl 12″ (remixes & instrumentals). How fitting then that ‘Universe Boat’, arguably their finest record, surfaced in 1996 on the tiny indie label Yesha and was barely heard by anyone.
The Veldt fell just short of being an anathema in the Chapel Hill indie rock scene of the early '90s. They were predominantly black, an unfortunate mark against them.
Listen to the biggest hits from The Veldt, including, She Stoops to Conquer, Reprise, and more on Slacker Radio. A soul-powered shoegaze band that was dream pop at its core yet just as able to dish out driving riffs and battering drums, the Veldt were misunderstood from the beginning. In no way did they resemble any of the geeky indie-rock acts, such as Superchunk and Archers of Loaf, who thrived in their Chapel Hill home base
A personnel shakeup at the major label left the Veldt with a different and unsympathetic A&R representative, as well as an unreleased album and subsequent conflict with manager Jay Faires. A relatively fruitful deal was struck with Polygram. Minus Boyle, the band recorded the Marigolds EP with Moose's Lincoln Fong, who produced the material and also performed the basslines. The set, highlighted by the driving "CCCP," was issued in 1992 on Stardog, a subsidiary Polygram had established for Mother Love Bone. Outside the major-label system, the Veldt released an EP of demos, Universe Boat, in 1996. At some point, Danny Chavis and Burris departed and were replaced by Sam Clowney and Des White, musicians who were present on Love at First Hate, an album issued quietly on the band's End of World label in 1998.
