The Baptist Generals
Void Touching Faster Victuals (Sub Pop Records)
By: Alex Steininger
Off-key vocals that don't play well when stripped down to light supplementation behind an acoustic guitar and standard indie-blues-rock, The Baptist Generals' two faces are neither compelling nor original. These four songs are fun, but that's about as far as they go, losing their value after a few listens. A teaser for the full-length, No Silver/No Gold, to be released soon, I see The Baptist Generals going one of two ways. One, they create eight or so more songs these like four and being a terribly derivative, of-the-moment band. Or, two, these songs are just demos and outtakes and the album shows what they're really all about. Whatever the case may be, these four songs don't make the grade. I'll give it a C-.
