SLOW BURNING CAR presents 'Vicarious Disclosures'

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Wolf Georgia

Igniting a Rock Revolution

In a world where the essence of rock music seems to be dwindling, SLOW BURNING CAR emerges from the ashes, resurrecting the raw energy and audacity that once defined the genre. With their latest album, "Vicarious Disclosures", the Los Angeles-based powerhouse takes listeners on a riveting journey through the annals of rock history, blending elements of garage rock, post-punk, and early '90s grunge into a cohesive and electrifying whole.


From the very first notes of the opening track "Shapeless Faceless", it's clear that SLOW BURNING CAR is not here to play by the rules. The song greets you with a fierce drum and guitar pattern, a sonic slap across the face that rekindles the fiery spirit of rock music that has long been missing. TROY SPIROPOULOS takes center stage with his Ozzy Osbourne-esque vocal delivery, weaving a narrative that feels both raw and deeply personal. As KIM CLAYBORNE's soaring vocals enter during the chorus, listeners are transported to a realm where passion meets artistry, a showcasing of the band's musical prowess and innovative approach.


As we venture further, "Crime Minister" envelopes us in a mysterious aura, characterized by an intense bass and tom hook that grips your soul. The sudden scream that traverses the soundscape is nothing short of magical, evoking a punk-centric vibe reminiscent of The Ramones, yet with a complexity that mirrors the genius of Rush's Geddy Lee. This track is a masterful blend of terror and beauty, a dichotomy that SLOW BURNING CAR navigates with ease.


But the journey doesn't end there. "(One For) Subtlety" stands as a beacon of alt-rock brilliance, marrying the quirky vitality of Oingo Boingo with the raw energy of The Misfits. The guitars roar with a life of their own, creating a perfect backdrop for the Danny Elfman-esque vocals that dance with unrestrained joy. This track is not just a song; it's a celebration of the alternative rock genre, destined to become a classic in its own right.


Produced by the dynamic duo of TROY SPIROPOULOS and Aaron Kusterer, "Vicarious Disclosures" is more than an album; it's a homage to the sub-genres that have shaped the rock landscape. SLOW BURNING CAR has crafted a masterpiece that is both a nod to the past and a glimpse into the future, a testament to the band's relentless pursuit of musical innovation.
