Album review

The Detroit Cobras - Seven Easy Pieces

After much cheerleading from Jack White, The Detroit Cobras are the latest talented itinerants to be plucked from the Motor City's second-hand record shops and dive bars. Like most of their compatriots, ex-exotic dancer and butcher Rachel Nagy and her bandmates make uncomplicated party music, overhauling '60s R&B sides in a gnarled garage style close to fellow travellers The Dirtbombs. Little originality here, of course, but it's hard not to fall for such affectionate and confident revivalism.

Rating: 3 / 10
