HUSBANDS, THE: self-titled: CD

Easily the best CD to come across my desk lately. It’s refreshing to have an all-girl band that you can lay aside any comments that focus on that alone, because – fuck – they rock harder, tighter, and more consistently than at least thirty of the bands I reviewed this time around. They’re one of my favorite bands right now. Period. They’re like the Animals, but with more balls. Super trashy, snarly, roots rock that gets you all hot. Then they throw in covers of the Drifters and the Shirelles to sweeten up the whole thing. Highly recommended.
