Caesars, 'Strawberry Weed' (Astralwerks)

7
Strawberry Weed
Critical Mass
Label: astralwerks

by Jon Young

Caesars drummer Nino Keller could carry an album all by himself: From the violent eruptions on "Fools Parade" to the funky, sample-worthy breakdowns in "Boo Boo Go Goo," the nimble showoff never falters. However, the Swedish quartet -- best known for "Jerk It Out," featured in an iPod ad a few years ago -- also churns out concise, addictive tunes that wrap fierce emotions in soaring old-fashioned '60s garage pop. Wistful yet brawny, "Turn It Off" legitimately evokes the pre-rock-opera Who at their smoldering best.
