Crocodiles, The Soft Pack, Heavy Hawaii

When: Wed., Oct. 17, 9 p.m. 2012

Los Angeles' the Soft Pack (is it still worth mentioning that they were formerly called the Muslims? Probably not) have always been able to do a lot with very little. Their loose and uncomplicated rock, which had them touted as the next Strokes by some, earned them a lot of initial buzz. Thing is, the Soft Pack really are good, serving up jangly rock fronted by a singer who sounds like he doesn't get out of bed before noon. Their latest album, Strapped, adds a few more bells and whistles (i.e. synths and horns) to the mix, which in the end really don't add a whole lot to the mix. Imagine if they were still called the Muslims? MARK LORE

Price: $12-13
