Editorial Reviews

A brief synopsis of The Soft Pack's meteoric rise: a duo writing songs in California at the dawn of 2008 goes on to supporting The Breeders, Last Of The Shadow Puppets and Bloc Party as a quartet, and release two attention-grabbing singles, "Night Life" and "Extinction", that same year. They were the toast of CMJ in 2008 and South By Southwest in 2009, then toured alongside Franz Ferdinand, Phoenix, White Lies and Black Lips in 2009, and delivered the limited edition 12 inch Muslims EP to much chatter in March 2009.

I downloaded this album about one week ago.

Guys who like music but could probably work with you in the office doing some boring desk job, but with a side that not everyone at the workplace knows about.

"Flammable" is a bit too fast for its own good.

This is definitely one of the most refreshing releases in a while. The Soft Pack, a band from the west coast has made it with a stunning album. Parasites, great song by the way, had been airing on alternative radio stations for months but it was nowere available. It is finally included along with 9 more great songs. This self titled album has a poweful combination of rough, basic, unpretentious sound. Back to the roots. Hey, and heads up ... they're giving us for free (for a limited time?) the complete MP3 download of "answer to yourself", which I think is the album's definitive favorite, so go for it while still available, but I'd recommend to get the whole album. Way to go, guys!

Good to hear that some young dudes in the US are listening to some good old garage rock with their guitar amps turned to 11 on the treble/reverb. Guys who like music but could probably work with you in the office doing some boring desk job, but with a side that not everyone at the workplace knows about.

The Drums have had some success with their phenomenal single "Let's Go Surfing". Album is good, but at times too poppy. Surfer Blood will be discussed in a later post about their great "Astro Coast" album. Their "Swim" single is currently riding high in the Explorer 23.

Two weeks ago the Soft Pack played a very short and energetic show in the Paradiso upstairs room (That's in Amsterdam). 40 minutes, almost no breaks, loud and fast and with no encore. That is rock and roll like it should be.

Their self-titled debut-album is a wonderful collection of garagesurfrock. Starting with the single 'C'mon' (sing along everyone!) and 9 other great tracks the album clocks just over half an hour. Perfect length for this type of music. There's great rhythm and some nice twangy guitar riffs. And of course the surf-organ is present adding some authenticity to the record.

Garage Rock and surf rock prop up about every 15 years and it's good to see that a music style that is based on just a few chords and an abundance of energy still lasts and is still reinvented to fit the 21st century. Drums, Soft Pack and Surfer Blood are certainly doing that. Going to be the summer of surf!

Made a nice discovery with The Soft Pack today. Energetic and well played, this album entertains with consistent energy throughout. I find some similarities with early (and rocking) REM, both in their harmonies and energy, but there are also hints of alt rock (Aztec Camera, Cure,), surf punk, ska, 60s garage rock... this album has a lot to offer. Every song has a great hook, such that it's easier to remember the music than it is the name of the band.

Wow! I downloaded this album about one week ago. Now I'm hooked. This release represents what Rock n' roll is all about. Uptempo, raw, gritty production and no-holds barred pop. I do not like to make comparisons with other bands, but somethimes it is a necesary evil. These guys have learned from Ted Leo and the Buzzcocks that you can get your point across in a 2-3 minute catchy pop tune. Great find and Highly recommended!!

I agree they sound like early REM--especially some of the faster songs off Reckoning. But then they add some hints of the surf thing, which is done quite well. The first three songs are brilliant punk/pop gems. Nothing else on the album approaches these. I'm sure they're great live, would love to see them. If they put together another album that maintains the quality of C'Mon, Down on Loving, and Answer to Yourself, across all 10 songs, they'll be huge....
