Chicago's PROBLEM PEOPLE have quietly slummed in the ranks of numerous debauched bands while kindling this debut album for Tic Tac Totally Records. Sonically a range of melodic rock fronted by the poetic lyrics carried with a visceral and raspy delivery. Their brief catalog of human issues...er...album does the trick of a solid debut; it conjures a sense of uniformity out of disparate influences, turning the potential energy of each track into a cohesive, almost Husker Du like album. Good praise! But deserved. These are the boys that slouch behind the rank and file rows of the scene, looking up at it all from a whiskey haze of bar stools and then write an album from that perspective that ironically contributes a strangely absent voice to Chicago's unique way of tottering between art school pretense and anti-art-school pretense. FUCK IT ALL BRO. These are just some dudes. Some PROBLEM PEOPLE!
