AT A LOSS
16 is not a typical Los Angeles rock band, and by the quartet's view, that's ok by them. And, after listening to this left of center heavy outfit's 10-track sludgy rock fest, you'll be ok with it, too. ZOLOFT SMILE has got the artiness of Clutch, the robotically driving rhythm of Mastadon, and the unsettling feeling that Bloodlet emanates, making songs like "Hearing Voices" and "Grip of Delusion" captivatingly ominous. With a theme of losing streaming across many of the album's tracks, 16 is nowhere near a band that evokes good time feelings. Instead, the bleak outlooks and unfound resolutions echoed throughout ZOLOFT SMILE set the tone for an album to make your life look a whole lot better.
