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...

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.

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,...

Power Chord Passion Tuesday, December 26, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Mike Yoder, posted by blog admin Defection, Slow Burning Car’s fourth album, is a ten song collection aggressively putting this Los Angeles band over as one of the more cutting edge rock/metal acts working today. The band’s four musicians are obviously extraordinarily talent and play without any obvious ego trips, but they are clearly talented songwriters as well who thread influences into their work that further enhance their penchant for the personal and physical. These are songs capable of engaging listeners mentally and, naturally, physically. The muscular movement of the band’s music conforms to certain expectations we have about this style, but they prove themselves equally effective...
