The Wolfs - Lights Out +4

The Wolfs
Lights Out +4

The Wolfs = Iggy & the Stooges + The Germs

The Wolfs remind you of all the tough, grimy reasons you fell in love with rock n’ roll and/or punk—and it didn’t have anything to do with romance, money, status or fashion. “The Baroness” is my favorite track on this latest searing-hot proposition from the Wolfs; the backup choruses are charming, snotty, stirring; the opening guitar-riff-o’-tension will make you shake your ass; the thick, heavy choruses will make you tear off your clothes. “Outta Season” taps into messy, sing-along early L.A. punk. “Lights Out” is infectious; “Death Theme #2” is darkly and deeply disturbing like the inside of Nick Cave’s head, and “Thirty-Four” is a nice, psychedelic outro ending on wind chimes.
