New Music: The Soft Pack (Playing 10 Shows in LA Today)

San Diego's Soft Pack aren't part of any nascent glo- or post-anything. They don't use samples, can't be described as "spacey" or "shimmery" and--against fashion--aren't a "one-man-band."

What the Soft Pack are is the best garage rock band this side of Santa Barbara. Their self-titled debut under the Soft Pack moniker (they released an LP as the Muslims in 2008) is a study in lean, precise pop-punk that makes one's toes tap and fingers snap.

Check out "C'mon" and "Answer to Yourself" and tell me you wouldn't kill to be at that show.
