"Impossible Object" CD
Genres: indie rock, indie pop,
Off-kilter indie rock from this long-standing act on Devious
Semantics, and they get a nod from We Are Scientists so you
gotta dig that. Impossible Object is an energetic and eclectic
affair from these boys, and if you like rough, strange-but-accessible
rawk music then you're bound to find something of interest here. Dark
and somehow psychedelic "The Second You Sell" is my sleeper pick for
the record's best track (despite the press sheet listing three others
as "suggested") - the spaced-out texture and explosive ending make it
the most dynamic moment on this disc. Rocking "Cops Drugged Out"
continues the fire, while "East Vs. West" is a nice little
space-rocker and "Murder Weapon" has a distinct melody designed to
forge a place in your mind (the album's "single," if you will). And
then you've got the necessary slow songs, from traditional acoustic
"The Tunnel" and "Never Return" to bizarro "Cash Moves Killers."
Impossible Object is solid though inessential, but it brings
long-running Smite to my attention and for that I'm glad.
