Soundbull Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

Soundbull is a pretty entertaining record -- its slow rock grind pulses and clicks along on power chords and slanted instrumental breaks, shifting an apparent pop orientation just a few degrees from what would conventionally happen. When the band lowers the energy level on near-minimal tracks like "Minding my P's and Q's," it's clear that there's a definite compositional intelligence behind their off-center approach to rock.
