Slow Burning Car
Review by Ken Morton (Highwire Daze Magazine #133) 30th Anniversary Issue

Slow Burning Car is an explosive
indie rock band from Southern
California who have been releasing
fiery compositions under the radar
for years. Projection is their fifth
magnum opus, and it’s jam-packed with sonic artistry that will
provoke the senses and set the imagination in flight. Fans of
bands such as Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age are
absolutely destined to discover a new favorite when encountering
the raging refrains of Slow Burning Car’s amazing Projection.
Founding member Troy Spiropoulos and company definitely
have an all-out prize winner on their hands with the unveiling of
Public Cynic is the opening selection, and it’s captivating melody
and timely lyrics are unleashed with a dynamic sense of urgency.
There is a good deal of fun to be experienced within the realm of
Slow Burning Car as well, with the wickedly infectious Ladish
Man and the fuzz pop exuberance of Diamond In The Rough
rocking your world featuring Krista Ray on lead vocals.
Memories Of A Gentleman Ghost will both rock and haunt the
listener with its eerie spoken word meshed with a hyper-infectious
soundscape. Gardens In Space is another highlight, 9-plus
minutes of pure psychedelic intrigue. Meraki is sung entirely
in Greek, and is wondrously mystical in scope. And be sure to
stay till the end and board the Transfer Terminal Twelve for a
mind-blowing auditory conclusion.
The artistry of Slow Burning Car is presented by Troy
Spiropoulos on bass and lead vocals, Tommy Marcel on
rhythm/lead guitar, Adam Idell on drums, Krista Ray on lead
and backing vocals, and Aaron Kusterer on lead/rhythm guitar.
Projection by Slow Burning Car will be released at the beginning
of 2021, and is required listening as we all hopefully drive
into a much better place and time here on Planet Earth! Disc Review – Highwire Daze Magazine #133 (30th Anniversary Issue)
