The Vacant Lots

The Vacant Lots are an American electro post-punk duo comprised of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. Their minimalist, primitive rock and roll songs are characterized by boundless energy, tearing up the psych template with a genuine punk spirit. Collaborating with underground music legends such as Sonic Boom, Alan Vega of Suicide, and Anton Newcombe, The Vacant Lots have carved their own unique sound in the industry.

Influenced by artists like Alan Vega, The KVB, Factory Floor, Sextile, Suicide, Lydia Lunch, Fat White Family, Ike Yard, and Sonic Jesus; The Vacant Lots' music is a blend of raw power and infectious melodies that captivate listeners.

With their debut album Departure mixed by Sonic Boom and featuring vocals from Alan Vega on their second album [m=1168472], The Vacant Lots have proven themselves to be pioneers in the genre. They have also released a split 10" with Alan Vega and produced two EPs at Anton Newcombe's Cobra Studio in Berlin.
