Rose Hill Drive, ‘Moon Is the New Earth’ (Megaforce)

A power trio as an experiment in Skinner-box songcraft: Tell two brothers and a pal that culture ended in 1973 and then record the results. So you’ve got meaty hard rock that can jam with Bonnaroo and thrash with Warped. They love their “Trans Am” sans irony (because who doesn’t?), which means swing and torque are everything. “Do You Wanna Get High?” is an acoustic laugh (“Really is fantastic / You don’t even know, man”) that turns into a Zeppelin bomb. Hipness be damned, a tour with the Raconteurs would benefit both.
