Pack Sounds (Kalamazoo)
Members of The Reptilian and Guppy in a new band playing sing-a-longable catchy tunes for ya!
Bold Statements are exactly what Kalamazoos Pack Sounds is making with their debut LP, released this summer. With anthemic guitarwork, driving drums and bass, and vocals reminiscent of Sponges Vinnie Dombroski, the four-piece is creating a sound that is hopefully here to stay. To borrow from the album-opening 902 Nights Andrew Kallicragas, Brok Leshman, Steve Brewer and Russ Wagner, after four years together as a band, are already miles down the road to the place where the memories begin. And if these are the first memories they are putting down on wax, Im already intrigued to hear what comes next for this foursome. The kings of the dirty North seamlessly transition one track into the next waxing unapologetically on hard-partying nights, falling down on their luck and being invincible and unaware. Listening to Kallicragas sing, however, it appears the band is completely aware of where they have been, where they are headed and what it will take to get there. And while the realities of heavy drinking come up time and again, this group isnt afraid to take on bigger issues such as bigotry, mortality or depression. At times the album rocks hard and at others, like in the album-closing Libations it gets soft and serious. One word of caution: Listening to Bold Statements may make you feel that you are back in your younger years, in a dingy basement, with bad lighting, a keg of cheap beer and a punk band that is actually pretty damn good.
