Review Projection: Abrasive Noise

Posted 11 Jan 2021 in News

We start off another year of reviews with the fifth album from LA-based alt-rockers Slow Burning Car. The band features six musicians, with both a female and male vocalist who share lead vocal duties. I’ve never heard of this band before and naturally when looking at the album cover, I had an expectation of how this album would sound. Also aided by the promo which said this band was “Alt Rock/Spacecore”. However both the album cover and the promo are somewhat misleading to what lays beneath the surface. The alt-rock part is certainly right. The engine of this slowly burning vehicle is started up with an injection of indie rock tracks, which sees this automobile hit the road in a...

Hi Troy and welcome to Grande Rock. Well you have a new album out with Slow Burning Car, almost 3 years after the previous one “Defection”. T: Yes it is called Projection and will be released to the public through Amazon, Itunes, and Cdbaby.com on January 1st , 2021. How and under which circumstances did you start Slow Burning Car more than a decade ago? T: I was tired of being a spare part as a bassist in my previous bands so I decided to start my own focusing on my own songwriting with the help of my friends Mike Zimmerman and Victor Bishop. And how did you come up with the band’s name Slow Burning Car initially? T: It was actually the title...

I must admit Slow Burning Car is a new name to me, but the L.A. band already has 15 years on the clock and released four previous albums: Blowback (2007), Vol. 2-The Scattering (2009), Assumption (2013) and Defection (2017). Sonically these guys lay on a bed draped with all the trimmings of Grunge and Alt Rock, but there’s plenty in the mix really including a blast of metal, the big riffs of old school Rock and even a little artiness and experimentation for good measure. Indeed there’s a bit of everything in here from Swervedriver, and old-schoolers like Husker Du, Sonic Youth and more. Defiant opener ‘Public Cynic’ with its rather catchy riff is a powerhouse of Metal driven Grunge with...

SLOW BURNING CAR präsentieren mit diesem Album sehr interessante Kompositionen. Die Qualität von Projection überzeugt mit sowohl komplexer, äußerst vielschichtiger Musik, die praktisch niemals langweilig wird und immer wieder Neues offenbart, als auch seine Vielseitigkeit. Heftig, soft, aggressiv, romantisch, atmosphärisch, kraftvoll, melodiös, schräg, intensiv…Diese Elemente werden zu einem größeren, vollständigen Ganzen, das wunderbar komplex in seiner Präzision ist, konstruiert. Es wird sowohl mit einer rhythmusorientierten Instrumentalausrüstung, als auch mit akustischen Klängen gearbeitet. Die umwerfende Vokalperformance perfektioniert die sehr gut komponierten Lieder, die ein deutliches Gespür für feine Melodik aufweisen. Der Opener Public Cynic und seine zwei Nachfolger werden dominiert von Dynamik und Rhythmik, so dass man einfach gezwungen wird, seinen Körper im Takt der Musik zu bewegen. Die solide...
