I’ve read so many writers stumble when trying to describe Warsawpack’s
sound. It’s generally not the fault of the reviewer: this is a difficult
band to categorize and they likely revel in that fact. There are moments on Stocks
& Bombs where songs seamlessly flow between rap, jazz, dub, rock and
other genres. Political hip-hop lyrics are set against a backdrop of flutes, tenor
and baritone saxophones, a solid, jazzy rhythm section, a turntable DJ and a guitarist.
Yet for all the cacophony of terms and descriptions of the band, Warsawpack is
remarkably smooth, rhythmic and cohesive.
