The Ghost Wolves
The White Stripes may have raised the profile of guitar/drum duos, but The Ghost Wolves have found the dark, visceral heart of the format while layering elements of Delta Blues, foundational Garage Rock and blistering Punk into a hot electric pastiche that burns like the business end of a soldering iron. Guitarist/vocalist Carly Wolf (her family actually raised hybrid wolves) and drummer/vocalist Jonny Wolf (the pair are vowed and married; no fake brother/sister crap for them) raise a Rock ruckus the way a voodoo priest raises the living dead — with a flair for the show and a belief that all impossible things are possible. The Ghost Wolves’ two releases to date — 2011’s In Ya Neck EP and 2014’s Man, Woman, Beast album — are excellent representations of the twosome’s aesthetic, but you have to see them live for the gale force/Richter scale/tent-revival experience.
YOU’LL DIG IT IF YOU DIG: A buzzsaw that plays the Blues, a shotgun blast of Punk, a bourbon-soaked barrel of 90-proof Rock. (BB)
