In what can only be termed a surprising development, Throttlerod's Starve the Dead EP is an astoundingly mellow release! Clearly a repository for unusual songwriting ideas, the five-tracker eschews the band's typically energetic post-stoner rock crunch to focus on the Southern rock and country influences hidden just beneath the surface -- not to mention an additional affinity for country. Ghost town ballads "Long Winded Train" and "This Town" convincingly ape that Skynyrd/Crowes thing, while the EP's best ballad, "Steal the End," arguably strikes a perfect balance between old country-rock and new alt-rock sensibilities (think that laid-back adult rock swing Kid Rock was trying to nail during his mid-2000s reinvention). Remaining cuts "Borrowed Chair" and the title track don't quite measure up, but hardly stink, either, making for a peculiar detour serious fans will probably not regret investigating.
