White Mystery "Powerglove" EP (HoZac)
Three raw, spare (obviously, it's a drums and guitars duo) beautifully weird trash rockers form Chicago's best sibling act since Polk Brothers. stopped selling Frigidaires. The standout here is "Ye Olde Stone" where suddenly Miss Alex is vocally channelling Grace Slick, but the weighty SF 60s vibe is brought to earth by lifting song structure from Larry and the Blue Notes' "Night of the Sadist"/"Night of the Phantom," as gloriously un-progressive a garage single as any ever made! The only mystery here is why they ain't playing the Superbowl halftime show!
