Panthers The Trick
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Vice
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
Perhaps it's the influence of being remixed by MSTRKRFT (who filter-funked the 2004 single "Thank Me With Your Hands"). Or perhaps it's from hunching in the shadow of the MC5's 'fro. But on The Trick, the group's second Vice full-length, Brooklyn's Panthers' pounce comes across as part-DFA1979's overdriven lashing and part-Wolfmother's fried boogie. Toned down is the post-hardcore arrhythmia of earlier recordings, and dialed in is a Queens of the Stone Age-style skuzzy strut. Though by no means less crotch-driven, The Trick sounds more humid and less harried, equally cranked yet less cracked.
