Earl Greyhound, ‘Soft Targets’ (Some)
As heavy as Led Zeppelin, but way less obnoxious, Earl Greyhound update traditional hard rock by leaving out the crotch-happy swagger, with terrific results. Fronted by excitable guitarist Matt Whyte, the New York trio seem happiest when they’re trying to simulate an earthquake on the pounding “S.O.S.,” though even the Beatles-esque “Good” produces a wicked rumble. For that, credit rude drummer Ricc Sheridan, who cheerfully tries to demolish each song, regardless of style.
