Selection: White Reaper’s “The World’s Best American Band,” released on Polyvinyl Records.
Review: If you’ve ever wondered what The Ramones would sound like if they had bands like Van Halen and Thin Lizzy as their main influences, White Reaper’s sophomore album answers that question in gloriously skuzzy fashion. This is the kind of rock album made for blasting out of car windows on sunny days, and you’re definitely going to want to add it to your summer rotation. This is rock as it was originally intended — loud, wild and free. The Kentucky group doesn’t quite live up to the album’s title yet, but they’re one step closer.
Favorite song: “Little Silver Cross”
