Do you miss the polyrhythmic guitars and glottal growls of Packrat? Well, the band misses you, too. So much that they've reformed after a brief hiatus to offer some math-rock cheer to the Trunk Space on Christmas Eve Eve. Boasting the divisive declaration that "Nirvana sucks" on their Facebook page, the band instead tilts toward '90s rockers Drive Like Jehu and prank-callers like Longmont Potion Castle. Songs like "The Point of Vacation Had Almost Escaped Me" off their six-song EP, Overwhelmed, teeter on the edge of dissonance and discord, creating a sound that's ambient and gritty but melodic enough to grab the attention of pop fans. With "I Am a Method Actor," the band achieves a thrusting glory akin to something like And You Will Know Us By the Trial of Dead might have, before that band shortened its name and was shaken loose from the heart of fans of violent art-rock. Welcome back, Packrat; it's nice to see you again.

Hey Mybrainmelted,

I'm in Packrat and I have no idea who this author is. It was an easy assumption though. Thanks for taking the time to express your feelings anonymously. What is Screamo?


Packrat is a brilliant band and it takes a real musician to play their music.. I'm sure "Mybrainmelted" wouldn't understand anything past the simplicity of Kesha.. Good for you.


Packrat sucks and I'm really curious how they got a new times blog... Oh yeah their friend wrote it. If you are 15 and like screamo you may like this band, but it's just a mess and waste of time in my opinion.


Haha dude I am a real musician and study jazz. Packrat is nonsensical bullshit and Brandon is one of the biggest fags I've personally ever met.
