PORCUPINE: Carrier Wave: LP

Feb 05, 2020

Occasionally satisfying off-kilter rock, at its best when it calls to mind Queens Of The Stone Age (“Plans in Slo-Mo,” “I See You Float”), or when they ditch their side-route melodic ideas and just go for the quickest path between two points (“Show and Tell”). It’s hard to know where this music can go or what the goals are. If this was 1999 they’d have a major label deal, which I suppose means: this is good but slightly out-of-date. –Matt Werts (Dead Broke, deadbrokerecords.com)
