You can't roll 'em into your sleeves, and they've shed their Islam-referencing nomenclature. Timothy C. Davis has more to tell you, from our Critics' Picks:
Somehow, in an era where every fifth band reviewed by Pitchfork has the word "fuck" somewhere in its name, The Soft Pack (formerly known as The Muslims) managed to piss off damn near everyone who every heard their name. (The exception, to hear the band tell it: Muslims.) Those who've heard them play, however, tell a different story. As The Soft Pack, the Los Angeles-based quartet makes pleasingly apathetic, torque-filled, surf-peppered slow punk that has picked up converts at every stop. Sure, they're preaching the same SoCal gospel that's been circulating for decades now. That never stopped religion from doing it. Or Bad Religion, for that matter.
