mp3: The Soft Pack – Bright Side

Anyone who’s read these pages before may know that I saw The Soft Pack in February and was blown away. It happened again yesterday. Their brand of addictive Californina surf rock tunes really get inside your head. The band played just before The Hold Steady whose front man Craig Finn looked on impressed from the side of the stage as The Soft Pack’s Matt Lamkin (guitar/vocals) and Dave Lantzman (bass) played a warm up jam with backs to the crowd. He was there watching again several times during their proper set. Surely a good sign. Songs like ‘Extinction’ & the excellent excellent ‘Parasites’ fitting in nicely alongside some newer numbers. Bring on the album!

For Fans Of: The Stooges, The Strokes, The Rolling Stones.
