The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from New York 4 piece Pollock entitled Valentine. 


The band The playing abilities of this band is pretty solid across the board. I would say they possess intermediate playing abilities & intermediate writing abilities. Timing seems to be a bit choppy in some spots within the indie-alternative rock grooves. Klein's voice is effective as he delivers many solid vocal performances that match the indie style of music perfectly. The music Upbeat, raw, in your face, interesting, melodic, & highly entertaining. Musical textures reminiscent of Tool, Perfect Circle, Chevelle & Incubus anything indie & heavy. If you like those kinds of artists you will no doubt get a kick out of this CD. The songs Above average songs. Very simple yet effective, conservative, highly original, raw & powerful. It strikes the prefect balance between alternative & just a dash of punk. This band is clearly being themselves as songwriters & this is what comes out of the other end. My favorite song on the CD is Uriel. The vibe Great vibe. Perfect for late night college parties, coffeehouses, or even magazine shops. The production delivers a raw musical variety. I give this band hi marks for not being afraid to let it all hang out musically. Accidental Tribe is not trying to be some popish punk band striving for mass appeal they are just being themselves. The CD refuses to try to hard. The good Very likeable record & band, solid songs & fun to listen to. The bad Nothing to report. I will however say this is EP has been out for a while. It's a good start but a Full Length CD is yet to be heard. The ugly Nothing to report.


The verdict Valentine by Pollock is a rock solid CD. The songwriting is clearly above average. The production gets its point across. Again  the most amazing thing about this CD is the raw indie groove presented on each piece. Fans of carefree Punk, Alternative-College Rock will love this CD no doubt.
