Glide Review - The Greenhornes - ****

Got a new review up on Glide

Read it right C'HERE!!!

It is of The Greenhornes newest release ****

Ahhh I get it garage your title 4 stars and then it will look like you get no bad reviews...very tricky!!  I can't argue with that title though, this album is all you could want from the garage rockers from Detroit. 

Making up the rhythm section of The Raconteurs, Patrick Keller and Jack Lawrence are one of my favorite low-end combos playing today.  Teaming again with Craig Fox the band picks up right where it left off, apparently they were stockpiling their good ideas and managed to record them with Jack White producing this year. 

The tunes are dope.  The group is still straight out of the mid-60's, flaunting their Kinks/Stones love and making it sound all so easy.  As I stated the vocals leave something to be desired, and when it comes to this "style" of rocking I find myself reaching for Reigning Sound a bit more often, but that shouldn't take anything away from this disk (More of a personal opinion thing). 

Give some of the songs a listen, and then go buy it on Vinyl...It sounds great on it and I am sure it is the way these guys want you to listen to ****...
"Underestimator" One of my favorites:
"Go Tell Henry"

"Cave Drawings" Live KEXP (this sounds like a Brian Jones outtake to me)
