Editorial Reviews

Middle Class Rut's two members, Sean and Zack, have been playing together since they were teenagers in Sacramento. The band has spent the past four years crafting new songs and allowing the style and sound of their project to evolve and establish itself. They record every song they write almost immediately in their rehearsal space, capturing the instantaneous spirit of a track while still in the moment. The band's debut, No Name No Color, is a collection of these recordings, which they elected to use rather than attempt to recreate the spark of the original tracks later in a studio.

Middle Class Rut (MC Rut) is a 2 piece band from the defunct band Leisure, circa 2003. It consists of lead singer/guitarist Zack Lopez and drummer Sean Stockham. I used to be a fairly avid Lesiure fan but when they fell of the radar I had no idea what happened. Fast forward to about 2007 and I found out that 2 of the 4 members created MC Rut. "New Low" was a song that was played in my area (Sacramento, where they are from) and I took a liking to that song after several listens. 2 eps later they have released the album "No Name No Color" and it truly does not dissapoint. There are a few tracks from the last 2 eps on here but it is understandable as it is very, very hard to find the eps and the reworked versions are a lot better quality and are a little different. This band is, basically, pure unadulterated rock. You can hear hints of Jane's Addiction, Rage Against The Machine, heck...I even heard Sparta but the influences mostly just come from the voice of Zack Lopez which isn't his fault...it's just how he sounds. Whereas the 2 eps were more raw and fast paced rock this album has more experimentation to it, in a good way. The raw fast paced rock is very evident on this record but once you get to the track "Are You On Your Way", which by the way is in the top 3 of this album, things slow down a little bit and what you get is I very honest track that you know has some history to it. And that is what this record is about: honesty and history. Zack Lopez has no problem expressing his concerns with the past and present and is not ashamed to admit that he has done wrong, which is very evident on "New Low", a track I can also very much relate to and I am sure everyone can to.Read more ›

It was a pretty interesting CD. Only hearing one of the songs previous to buying the CD, the others didn't let me down. All the music has the same feel to it without being too much alike and blending in together.

I saw these guys last night with 30 Seconds to Mars (I know...I know...wife got the tickets), and was blown away. I'm still amazed just two guys can make such excellent loud noise. The best way I can describe their sound is a three way split between Jane's Addiction in vocals, Rage Against the Machine in intensity, and Finger Eleven in popiness. Busy Bein' Born and New Low are enough to carry the album, but No Name No Color is a solid work throughout. Thematically, as the band's name suggests, MC Rut taps into present day middle class economic anxiety that is easy to relate to no matter your political persuasion. "USA" and "One Debt Away" could easily fit into a mix with Anti-Flag while "Dead End" could be a Tea Party anthem. It is smart loud angsty rock that fits well on work out or long drive playlists.

In a world of bands that all sound the same but don't say anything, MC Rut is a standout. This is a great album. Simply put, it just ROCKS! Just bought it today and I'm on my second spin through already. I picked 5 songs as favs on the first spin through and I've added a couple on the second spin. I can see all of them being favs after a few more spins.

I discovered this band while skimming through my local radio station's play list. I heard them and immediately fell in love with their sound. I listened to a few of their songs online and decided to purchase their entire album. I was not dissappointed.
I am now a fan.

I went to a Awolnation concert and did not have a clue to who was opening up for them. So then came about Middle Class Rut, which I never heard before and consist of 2 band members. They surprised me, they were very entertaining, loud, and full of energy. Of course, once I got home I purchased their album and was not disappointed. The lead singer does sound like other lead singers out there as far as his voice. However, his songs seperate him from them. I highly recommend this album, so check out the sample songs and give the album a try.

No Name No Color is a fresh find in the indy-type alternative music scene. At first listen, the band does project a Jane's Addition sound as some have noted; however, the more I heard, the more I forgot about that comparison. Intense, immense, harmonic, and heavy. The entire album is gold and I will look for them in concert.
