New to me.
A little research turns up the band already has 2 full lengths out. Really digging this. The track above seems an anomaly with the amount of piano. I hear the Dickies, a little Sparks. Sounds like a band from southern California.
Here are their 2 previous albums.
Torche is one of my favorite bands since 2000. A bright spot in a haze of mediocrity. Forging heavy down tuned metal with pop hooks. They have continued to improve with each release, until now.
The new Torche album Restarter is a let down. A color by numbers effort. Too much sludge, too few hooks.
There are parts that almost reach inspired in the dirges and the poppy songs are head nodding but nothing that has made me want to hear it again.
Everything is too familiar. I’m bummed out.
Take a listen for yourself.
Was wondering what people are looking for from bands/musicians on social media.
It’s only 5 questions so it should be less than 5 minutes of your time.

The “Cheap Talk Chat Trick” run by Ken Mills who does the PodKISSt podcast invited me to talk about my favorite Cheap Trick album. Yeah it is.
Here is a link to listen.
iTunes Yes, it’s in the PodKISSt feed. November, 3 2013 is the date.
