PROFESSIONALS AND CONVICTS
Wistfully artistic, the Pacific Northwest clan Patient Patient enjoy creating multi-textured, odd-chorded guitar rock that challenges both the inimitable vocals and the curious listener. Radiohead, Muse, Jeff Buckley...yes. they're all apparent influences, but so is the grunge scene of their hometown, stamped on this unit via bands like Soundgarden and Green River on tracks like "Nyctalopia". Armed with a Brit-rock gleam and soul-drenching alt rock despair one-two punch, the nine tracks on PROFESSIONALS AND CONVICTS cram bright rays of light through the small cracks in the floor, casting ominous musical shadows like "It's A War" along the way.
