NYC tandem Object may get the obvious comparisons to White Stripes, but aside from the one guy singing and strumming and one girl bashing the kit similarity, this dynamic duo’s five-track disc emits a lot more than the obligatory. Demonstrating Jeff Buckley’s soul, Kurt Cobain’s scream, and Billy Corgan’s twisted melodies, tracks like “Fooled” and “Walk Away” have got the ‘90s alt rock rage tightly packaged and compressed into memorable nuggets that pop into your head at the most random times, while the sleigh bell effect and fancy fretwork that open up “Open Sores” help this track ring out the loudest. Object has done the most with the least on THE MIRROR WORLD, making a compelling release along the way that rockingly resonates with the ghosts of rock radio’s not so distant past.
