Slow Burning Car – Projection


Projection is a new album from Los Angeles-based rock band, Slow Burning Car. This group has apparently released four previous albums together (and also toured internationally), which explains why the sound is tight and cohesive. The guitars are assertive and polished, providing a robust framework for the songs.

At first glance it might seem to be a rather straightforward LA rock, but there is a lot of creativity employed with the vocal delivery and effects. Ultimately, this gives the album an avant garde quality, and the overall aesthetic is slightly futuristic. The lyrics are peppered with biting social commentary and occasional humor. My favorite track is probably The Quantum Mariner, a masterpiece in songwriting that is performed to equal perfection. Projection is a top-tier release, artistically and technically superior to almost anything being produced on major labels today.
