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...

Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) December 28, 2017 Written by David Shouse, http;//hiphipdream.blogspot.com Slow Burning Car’s fourth studio release, Defection, is an invigorating musical ride from start to finish. They don’t simply bludgeon listeners into submission with a power chord guitar rock attack – there’s ample intelligence powering the band’s ten songs and they never confine themselves to a single musical approach. Instead, Defection crackles with the same imaginative energy enlivening the band’s previous three releases and, not unexpectedly, finds that the band continues to refine their approach thus focusing their muscle and concentration. Even the album’s comparatively muted tunes surge with raw creativity and carry listeners away from the first. Their musicianship is equally impossible to deny...

Pop music is our thing too – we want to cover it all for you the reader.Thursday, December 28, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Larry Robertson, Slow Burning Car’s Defection is a smashing rock album, nothing more and nothing less. If you want some no frills hard-rock with a modern edge then you’ll get 10 tracks of firmly footed, rock solid, riff-centric groove that manages a few intricate stylistic juxtapositions throughout. Each song is individually sound and the entire album feels sonically cohesive as opposed to a simple collection of songs. The gusty,...
