Instant Camera, Alive On Departure

Instant Camera, Alive On Departure

Fuzzed-out guitars and subdued vocals make up the majority of the songs on Louisville band Instant Camera’s latest album. And while the band does its best to rehash the underground punk aesthetic of the mid-’80s (bands like Public Image Limited and Pere Ubu come to mind), the album quickly loses the listener’s attention. Songs like “Social Anxiety” and “Working Class Zero” do their best to worm their way into listener’s brains, but while the songs hint at potential, there’s simply not enough substance to make a lasting impression. Maybe it’s the fact it’s all been done too many times, or maybe it’s the fact that it’s been done much better — either way, Alive On Departure is dead on arrival.
