Album Notes
Los Angeles Rock Band, Plastic Rhino, Bring Back 90's Rock on "Recondition"

Plastic Rhino throwback to their 90’s rock influences on their new album “Recondition." The Los Angeles based band consisting of Atara Gottschalk (Lead Vocals) and Jack Glazer (Guitar), have a long list of inspirations that have contributed to their powerful brand of atmospheric rock. Their previous releases “Confessions of A Nobody” and “Let’s Begin” were both met with critical acclaim, garnering them a dedicated fanbase in the Los Angeles area. Their work with rock producer Tom Chandler (Diamond Lane, Desecrate), who produced "Recondition," has only elevated their unique sound, which pulls from influences that range from Garbage to Metallica. It's a spirited mix of rock music built on a riff-heavy sounds that mingle with Gottschalk’s howling vocals.

The album opener, “Big Man Baby” is an in-your-face powerhouse track that’s dripping with frustration and destitution. It’s the first taste of their sound, a forceful mix of punk, industrial rock and grunge; with a hint of female independence that only a true rocker can convey. On the reverberating “H2S” there is dissonant feel in which the guitars and drums are altered just enough that they become almost otherworldly in nature. The chorus is built on layers of affected vocals, encompassing a feeling of forlorn reflection, an emotion that Gottschalk taps into with ease. Then there’s “Like It,” a raucous demand to be loved for who you are. Gottschalk’s harsh, throaty growl has a distinct insistence, perfect for the hard hitting bravado of the message. Pristine electric guitars slide beneath a punchy drum beat on “M.A.D,” a track that toes the line between alternative edge and full throttle punk rock. It finds Gottschalk in her element, spitting venom over crunchy guitars, building to an earsplitting finale. Despite an understated beginning, “Make It Heavy,” blasts into a frenzied and introspective look at the magic of having “IT.” Without delving into an interpretation of what “IT” is, they allow the instrumentation to grow into a pure avalanche of alternative sound. Which pretty much answers that question for us. Then there’s a moment where the lights go dim and the electric guitar swirls quietly beneath Gottschaclk’s pitch perfect meandering vocals. It's the surprising finisher, “The Ballad of the Last Rhino.” To be certain, it's an undeniably vulnerable moment, and the only quiet-ish one on the record. It's full of surprise as it sizzles beneath a stealth, slow burn that eventually goes full scale grunge status.

On a album full of stand out tracks, Plastic Rhino solidify themselves as a force to be reckoned with, both on the stage and on the record. The spitfire energy and raging emotional lyricism provide a solid foundation for their unique sound.
