  • We Were Promised Jetpacks blasts off

    We Were Promised Jetpacks
    In the Pit of the Stomach
    Release Date: October 4, 2011
    Fat Cat Records

    Can there be a more amusing band name? We Were Promised Jetpacks hails from Edinburgh, Scotland and have supported fellow countrymen Frightened Rabbit in late 2008.  On their sophomore effort, In the Pit of the Stomach, the Scots bring fuzzy guitar heavy indie rock that ignites from the start with opening track “Circles And Squares” with a thrashing one minute interlude before even the first lyrics are sung.

    Their second single from the album “Medicine” sputters a frenzy of guitar riffs that don’t let up until the last lick.  The foursome bring it down a notch for “Act On Impulse” as the melodic chord progression is slowly roused into a climax with an increasingly rapid drum beat.  This is probably the kind of song that closes out an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”.  The track was most notably shortlisted by the All Songs Considered gang over at NPR.  “Picture of Health” is strangely reminiscent of the Foo Fighters without the leadership of Dave Grohl.

    Overall the album sways between stadium rock and Scottish brogue musings.  The rock often engulfs the potential of a decent rock ballad.  For instance, “Sore Thumb” opens with an over two minute instrumental before lead Adam Thompson sings from what seems like 25 feet from the mic.  It’s pleasant and then the crescendo of guitars, drums and cymbals washes over.  Don’t get me wrong I love a good rock out, but really?  At least, it ends sweetly and with a crash of a cymbal.

    You can stream the entire album over that the AV Club and be the judge yourself.

    Disclaimer: Never heard the WWPJ’s debut These Four Walls, but from the comments on the stream.  More of the same for you fans!
