Review

Review Text Their catch phrase -- Groove the Mellow Angst -- should be enough to clue you in to the fact that this self-proclaimed "loungecore" trio likes to talk softly and carry a big shtick. In short, Black Velvet Flag is three indie rock nerds in cheezy tuxedos who write generic, schmaltzy lounge Muzak, then add the words from songs by punk rock legends like Black Flag (on whom their name is an obvious parody), Fear, the Circle Jerks, and Suicidal Tendencies. The singer is often so off-key that it's more painfully excruciating than funny, the beats are provided by a poorly programmed drum machine named Ringo, and the lounge/punk fusion might be amusing as a three-minute comedy sketch, but the joke wears thin -- very thin -- before the second song is over. Recorded live to only a few embarassed titters and sparse, sporadic applause, you'd think Black Velvet Flag would've realized that the joke is on them. ~ Bret Love
