Stretcher - _Stretcher_
(Independent, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
While I'm not keen on the whole six-song outing here -- some of the vocal arrangements grow tiresome after a while --, for the most part the dark 'n' moody sounds of Stretcher carry out rewarding results. This up and coming New York outfit have a surprisingly strong production and a knack for making sure the meaty hooks back the solid songwriting. While at times I'm hearing a bit of older Soundgarden, the material here easily sheds light on their own style and that is worthy of being investigated. From a few listens of the disc, it's no surprise that this band has the goods to carry it off live, a factor all too real seeing that some of the material here is recorded live at New York's famous CBGB's. I'm interested in hearing more.
