Vex Ruffin – Same Thing Tomorrow by Stones Throw Records

VIDEO: “Crash Course”

With Same Thing Tomorrow, Vex Ruffin offers more of his signature infectious but minimal sound. This cassette-only release of ten new, understated tracks – culled from more than 300 songs Ruffin submitted to Stones Throw Records head Peanut Butter Wolf over the past year – is an intimate showcase of the prolific Chino resident’s songwriting. His range of influences, from early New Order and Peter Murphy to the Jungle Brothers, is on display here. It’s easy to see why the bare-bones thump of his instant classic “Take It” was recently featured on HBO’s Girls and the feature film Lola Versus. With his raw live shows and catchy sound, Ruffin continues to attract new fans like Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, who called “I’m Creative” his “tune of the year.” Stick it in the deck and press play.
