Review Blowback: Tastes Like Rock! Music Magazine Review – April 2009

Slow Burning Car – Blowback
Slow Burning Records

Slow Burning Car is a one band army of musicians, making each song a new experience as band members take a revolving door approach with a different set of musicians on each song. I like that.
This also provides some great genre crossover, indie ballads (Suddenly, A Little Sign), alternative style introspections of the songwriter’s progress through life and love (I Saw The Mountain, Low), and a song that would play out perfectly as what I’ll dub a “grunge western” (Rumbling Chief); amongst others.

Slow Burning Car is definately a band I recommend looking up, and Blowback is an album to add to your collection.

Blowback’s twelve tracks are: King Con, Farkytootle, Low, I Saw The Mountain, Formula I, Suddenly, A Little Sign, Respect, Rumbling Chief, First Born, Grave (dedicated to Mark Bavis, Ace Bailey, and the many others that lost their liveson September 11th 2001), and Slow Burning Car.
This reviewer’s choice tracks are Farkytootle, Low, A Lttle Sign, and Respect.

Slow Burning Car gets a 3.5 out of 5 for Blowback.
