a rose by any other name…

first they were called the muslims.  and then those people who have “terrorist hunting permit” stickers on their cars and trucks taunted the band with racist sentiments.  ok, so the sticker thing i made up, but the name change happened because some people (lots and lots of people) are foolish and ignorant. 

now they’re the soft pack.  los angeles is homebase but originally they hailed from san diego.  i love their lazy sound.  garage rock and roll for stoners?  maybe that’s a bad description…whatever you call them, it’s seemingly effortless. 

their self-titled album on kemando records is by far one of my favorite releases of the year.
