Clearing the Channel

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When most record execs think of Philadelphia, they tend to associate the city with R&B, jazz and hip-hop more than rock. They think of Gamble & Huff, Teddy Pendergrass, the Stylistics and the Intruders back in the '70s, or Jill Scott, the Roots, Eve and Beanie Sigel in the '90s and 2000s; they think of John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, McCoy Tyner and numerous other jazz heavyweights who came from the land of cheese-steaks, row houses and unscrupulous politicians. But the fact that A&R people generally overlook Philly's rock scene doesn't mean that the city doesn't have a lot of rock activity, and Sinch is one of the many worthwhile Philly area bands that has ...

When most record execs think of Philadelphia, they tend to associate the city with R&B, jazz and hip-hop more than rock. They think of Gamble & Huff, Teddy Pendergrass, the Stylistics and the Intruders back in the '70s, or Jill Scott, the Roots, Eve and Beanie Sigel in the '90s and 2000s; they think of John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, McCoy Tyner and numerous other jazz heavyweights who came from the land of cheese-steaks, row houses and unscrupulous politicians. But the fact that A&R people generally overlook Philly's rock scene doesn't mean that the city doesn't have a lot of rock activity, and Sinch is one of the many worthwhile Philly area bands that has enjoyed a small local following since the '90s even though they aren't well-known nationally. While Sinch has never been the most original or groundbreaking band in the world, they generally provide respectable alternative rock/post-grunge fare. This 2005 release, which comes 11 years after Sinch's formation, is an enjoyable demonstration of their hard-rocking yet melodic approach -- and like a lot of similar post-grunge outfits, Sinch demonstrates that introspection and loudness are not mutually exclusive. Sinch rock aggressively much of the time, but their lyrics are introspective in a dark, often troubled way; they wear their Pearl Jam/Stone Temple Pilots/Nirvana/Bush heritage like a badge of honor, providing songs that are derivative but likable and noteworthy. Again, no one will accuse Clearing the Channel of trying to reinvent the alternative rock/post-grunge wheel, but in terms of craftsmanship, the album is usually a success -- and it serves as a reminder that while Philly's reputation as an R&B/jazz/hip-hop Mecca is well deserved, its ongoing contributions to rock should not be overlooked.
