EDTANG AND THE CHOPS: Magic Tricks and Rolling Stone: CD

EdTang And The Chops play a mixed bag of alt-country, ‘50s-inspired rock’n’roll, and acoustic barroom folk anthems; all with a definite punk rock swagger that recalls elements of Against Me! and Sixer. EdTang has a strong, gravelly vocal delivery reminiscent of Tim Barry, a knack for storytelling, and a band that knows when to rock and when to chill. Magic Tricks and Rolling Stone is a solid Saturday night/Sunday afternoon record, definitely worth checking out. –Chad Williams (EdTang Music, edtangmusic.com)
