Assumption Disc Review: www.bluesbunny.net (July 2013)

Posted 11 Sep 2013 in News, Reviews

Making it happen for a third time are Los Angeles rock band Slow Burning car as their album “Assumption” takes us across a riff infested American landscape in search of their very own yellow brick road. Their previous album – has it really been 4 years? – “Volume 2 – The Scattering” established this band as a thinking man’s rock band with the necessary lyrical and musical skills and imagination to walk the line of radio friendliness whilst keeping your ears off balance. Certainly, it is that left of centre lyricism so evident in their previous album that livens up both the dystopian bleakness of “Blake” and the candyfloss sidewalk strutting of “Carnaby Shuffle”. It’s a maturity thing for this...

Slow Burning Car: Assumption Melodic/Progressive Rock Craig Hartranft www.dangerdog.com 5-4-13 If anything California’s Slow Burning Car are some imaginative fellows, bringing their third album of eclectic melodic rock, Assumption. Eclectic is an appropriate description for the tunes here, or maybe, varied. However, the album isn’t quite as cohesive and compelling at the previous Vol. 2 – The Scattering.

It comes with Blake and The Scorpio Complex, two of the best songs here. Then, except for a few other songs, the album is simply a mixed affair of creativity disguised as quirkiness. The best...

Disc Review (Assumption): Music Morsels

As reviewed by Musicmorsels.com Slow Burning Car – Assumption Trifonic Records The third CD from L.A. fivesome Slow Burning Car invites you to crank up the speakers from the first power cords and driving rhythms of lead track “The Ghetto And The Sea.” Kind of like STP on a Ramones trip with just the right touch of Alice Cooper-ish glam hooks, this is music that simply rocks…hard! However despite the influences, they craft the songs so it does not make you feel like you are hearing something that sounds like everyone else out there these days. Perhaps it is that unique combination of retro sounds with a modern feel; “Dimples” for example sounds like it could have been a...
