This Canadian outfit seemingly popped out of nowhere to drop this self-titled slab that’s full of 70s rock n roll nostalgia. The truth is they’d put out their first three albums on their own, probably breaking rocks as a chain gang to fund them, before winning an international competition that put them on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and enlisting Patrick Carney of the Black Keys to produce the new record. It’s a bluesy, dusty boot-stomping romp, laden with beer spilling vocal hooks and fuzzy guitars. This album feels so good you’ll be singing along with tears in your eyes in no time.
