The picture above clearly illustrates the jokier side of San Antonio’s Vetter Kids, but “I’m Just Your Newest Bluest,” from the forthcoming Logan EP is a smoldering, heartsick number about how life in a touring band can take a toll on the relationships that are most important. “You don’t love me anymore,” frontman Marcos Gossi sighs at the song’s wrenching peak. Surrounded by grinding, growling guitars, the song recalls the classic sound of mid ’90s emo, but has a potency and power all its own.
