The ragged two-packs-a-day bleat of Lucas Carscadden may be what defines Dead Mechanical, but it's drummer Matt Dorsey's more melodic vocal turns, an inspired ear for inserting melody into cacophony, and a rhythm section that pushes every song into hyperdrive that makes this CD a standout. Baltimore's Dead Mechanical specialize in the neat trick of creating songs that threaten to devolve into noisy chaos, only to drag you back with an ear-grabbing hook or a head-bobbing chorus that's pure pop/punk nirvana. The lyrics beguile as well (although usually only parts of phrases can be deciphered through the din of sonic guitars and Dorsey's impressively understated drumming,) on triumphant pop/punk anthems like "Guantanamo Calling," "Messy Apartment," "One Act Play!," and "Information In." Lucas' acoustic plaint "Please Stop Stealing My Car" provides both a aural respite and comic relief mid-album. With those scratchy vocals and bouncy rhythms, Jawbreaker comparisons are both inevitable and well-earned, but Dead Mechanical is quickly carving out its own unique niche somewhere on the border of post- and pop- punk.

Really really really good. When I hear someone use Dillinger Four (my favorite band) to reference a band's sound...I get a little scared. Often a D4 reference to a new band means they scream cookie monster vocals with a clangy bass sound. That's not the case with Dead Mechanical. The singer's vocals sound fresh to me and the music is great. If you are looking to get into a new band, check this one out. I can't believe it took me so long to discover this band.

Think Thumbs,Dillinger Four and maybe Modern Machines. This is pretty geat - fast and unpolished, laced with snotty vocals, catchy harmonies, smart, thoughtful, lyrics and a wry sense of humor. Songs like "Shitty Wedding" and "Please Stop Stealing My Car" make you laugh at your own feelings of resignation about getting older. Less of teenage rebellion thing and more of a "living the bittersweet life of awareness and anger" thing. Punk rock for people over 20 (i'm such an ageist bastid).
