System and Station:: A Series of Screws

Portland by way of Boise trio System and Station returned a little while back with their newest full length, A Series of Screws. It all opens with “Pain Pills,” a shadowy acoustic number with a seesawing rhythm and tinted vocals that sometimes remind of Perry Farrell. Electric guitar sparks start to fly by the time second track, “Pardon Me”, rolls around with crunchy fire brimmed notes that swirl and cultivate a powder keg atmosphere. Throughout there is a sense of immediacy with the music owing much to the abundant attention holding melodies. It rocks and its catchy, what more do you need? A couple tracks are below to see what you think.
