The Clutters, ‘Don’t Believe a Word’ (Chicken Ranch)
The latest upstarts from Nashville’s burgeoning rock community, the Clutters sport a punky live aesthetic, but their second album doesn’t quite capture that brash energy. Still, there are plenty of bright, riff-heavy crunchers, and after a few listens, tracks like “Rockaway,” “Fire,” and “Temperature” (with its blazing organ-cum-guitar) will have you cranking up your car speakers like a good-natured heathen. Don’t Believe a Word is a better-than-average building block for a scene whose peak has yet to come.
