Sam Champion | Slow Rewind
Yes, Sam Champion sounds a little like Pavement. Why do you have to say it so accusatory, like they just spit on a stranger? Just because Noah's voice has emotion built in, and sounds like Malkmus, and also because the guitars have spiral-like tones built in does not make it bad music! Get past the comparisons to legends and listen to some of the great songs on the record, including "Texas Song" (not 'Texas Never Whispers') and the title track, "Slow Rewind." My favorite is "You Can't See the Stars in This Town" - great harp, accordion & percussion and makes for a catchy little number, reverberating in the mind long after you've moved on with your day. If you're local, come support the band on their first SF appearance tonight (Wed, 10/26) at Bottom of the Hill. Seeya there! - TK
