SBC – Public Cynic (Single Review) From Bandcamp Diaries

Posted 31 Dec 2020 in Reviews

June 2020 – Slow Burning Car is a band with a focus on creating music that blurs the lines between alt-metal and alternative rock. Their most recent release, “Public Cynic” channels the swagger of bands like the Sex Pistols, and the technical proficiency of bands such as Guns N Roses, as well as Velvet Revolver and The Damned. The song has a catchy guitar riff, which has a darkness that almost reminds me of Nevermind-era Nirvana, going for a more direct feel. The drums are pounding and fierce, going for a truly special and distinctive edge that goes along with the vocals. What I love about this song is that it blurs the lines between punk, grunge, hard rock,...

Burned Out Borders Thursday, December 28, 2017 Written by Daniel Boyer, Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Los Angeles based Slow Burning Car has given audiences a number of different looks since they first formed. Their fourth album Defection finds them in particularly robust shape as they serve up a rather eclectic collection firmly in keeping with their identity as a stylistically varied band. Defection is the band’s fourth album and features ten songs arranged in such a way that the release flows with its own internal power running far deeper than mere surface textures. The band, operating as a four piece with this release, mixes heavy guitar riffing with acoustic textures and a smattering of electronica in a compelling fashion...

GROPING TOWARDS GRACE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Pamela Bellmore, No one can accuse Slow Burning Car of predictability. Their avowed influences like Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters promise guitar histrionics galore, but they also embrace psych pop pioneers Love and German art rockers Can and you discern those strains running through Slow Burning Car’s lyrical and musical approach. They bring these seemingly disparate elements together with a coherence and seamlessness that’s bracing to listen to. The ten songs included on their fourth studio release, Defection, never opt for well traveled roads – even traditionally slanted passages are, invariably, spiked with some sense of surprise that sends them...

Growing Old With Rock and Roll Reviews, commentary, interviews. The obsessiveness of one of my biggest obsessions reaches a new peak here as I assume anyone cares what I think. Welcome. :)Growing Old With Rock and Roll Saturday, December 23, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Jason Hillenburg The fourth release from Slow Burning Car, Defection, finds this Los Angeles five piece refining their hard-hitting, varied musical attack in a way that makes clear they are plotting an artistic trajectory intended to carry them for years to come. The band has existed in different incarnations and configurations during its lifespan and the base quartet has a renewed focus for this release that gives...
