Although Chromatics began as a solo project for Adam Miller, he quickly added most of The Soiled Doves' lineup. Adam Miller became the vocalist. Devin Welch played guitar. Michelle Nolan, a new addition, played bass guitar Blilie played drums. Miller and a revamped lineup released the band's second studio album, Plaster Hounds, in 2004 on Gold Standard Laboratories. This lineup featured Adam Miller performing double duty on guitar and vocals, with Nat Sahlstrom on bass and the Get Hustle's Ron Avila on percussion. The lineup changed once again, as Miller played many of the same songs from the Plaster Hounds era with Lena Okazaki replacing Sahlstrom on bass and a drum machine replacing the free jazz-influenced percussive style of Avila.
That mess has survived bandmember departure and arrival drama to inform the dull grooves of Plaster Hounds. Post membership trauma, head 'Matic Adam Miller remains, joined mostly by bassist Nat Sahlstrom and ex-Get Hustle drummer Ron Avila. The new rhythm section is at its snarling best on "Chalk Dust (Holy Water)" and "Garden," in which buzzing basslines strut over deceptively rudimentary drums, building a common front for Miller's muffled, affected yammer and snaky lead guitar lines.
Plaster Hounds even includes a nicely turned, unassuming cover of 1968's "Program". Though it lacks the wonderfully manic intro sample and continual weaving of second-level Books-styled radio noise, thanks to Avila, the percussive spirit of Simeon and Taylor remains. Whatever its precursors and wherever it's going, Plaster Hounds spouts muffled, often miffed rock 'n' roll with fine collagist tendencies, bringing to mind a musty the Lower East Side squat with some kid pissing on my shoe

On Plaster Hounds, Chromatics have rid themselves of the dancey, X-Ray Spex-like anthems found on their debut album Chrome Rats vs. Basement Rutz and now feature an adrenaline-addicted sound with surreal themes-recounting the days when 70s post punks Suicide, Silver Apples and Wire ruled the dank streets of New York City. This reinvention in sound could be due to the band's reduction from four to two tarist Adam Miller and new bassist/vocalist Nat Sahlstrom. In addition to the turbulent twosome, percussionist Ron Avila adds his lethargic beats to the rhythm section
