These guys have heard the old guys, they know the Stones, but they know the 12×5 Stones, and the Gloria Them, and they know a lot more. And they’ve heard the new guys, like the Replacements (ha ha), and the White Stripes. But they don’t sound like any of them, exactly. They constant work through each song to add more riffs, change up the rhythms, take it to another level. They have synthesized all kinds of stuff into an ideal rock amalgam, full of classic riffs but stumbly, loud and exhuberant, like it was all brand new.
If I had a band it would sound something like this. Could I be their Andrew Loog Oldham?
What you won’t find much of is YouTube material, but the whole album is available on Google All Play, which I subscribe to, and today I found this page at MySpace.com, which seems to be the whole album. I’m sure they’re on Spotify and Rhapsody and all else.
The song I want you to listen to is this one.
But listen to them all. These guys are old school, but they’re not nostalgic. They’re too young to be nostalgic. They’re making great music, is all.
