Genre: NEW & NOTEWORTHY
Much-hyped Australian revivalist Wolfmother is awesomely fluent in ancient heavy rock jams, overdosing on Led Zeppelin and (early) Black Sabbath riffage. Unlike the Darkness, this power trio takes nostalgia very seriously. Heavier numbers find singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale offering Ozzy-like wails over skull-crushing fuzz tones ("Dimension"); on folk-tinged power ballads, he delivers the best Robert Plant imitation since Whitesnake's David Coverdale ("Where the Eagles Fly"). Reveling in metal mysticism ("White Unicorn") and psycho-blooze ("Pyramid"), Wolfmother's catchy retro bombast also edges toward the White Stripes ("Apple Tree") and Soundgarden ("Tales"). A young, kick-ass band with a dusty, unpolished garage sound, Wolfmother excels in what everyone else has already done. Next time, however, they'll have to give us more than just a tour of their uncle's vinyl collection. —Sven Philipp
