The Found - Self Titled
by Donny Kutzbach
The quartet—comprising twin guitar attackers Harold Pollinger and Bryan Mecozzi, bassist Stephen Carveth, and drummer Ben Hayes—drown in their attack with maximum riffage and skull-shattering, pounding rhythm. Pollinger and Mecozzi trade off vocal duties to maximum effect; the call/response on “Sadie” and “Sugar & Spice” boils over with equal paranoia, aggression, and lust to a dance of serpentine lead guitars. “Country Dance” sounds like Beggars-era Stones meets AC/DC. The 11-minute closer “Ice Caps” finds the Found ending the affair with an expansive, psych-blooze freakout complete with hypnotic organ.
This record is likely to go down as one of 2008’s best local releases. My only complaint: that it’s not on vinyl.
The Found celebrate their CD release this Saturday, March 12 at Mohawk Place with like-minded souls Handsome Jack and Chylde. 11pm. Mohawk Place, 47 E. Mohawk Street (855-3931/mohawkplace.com).blog comments powered by Disqus
