THE YOUNG: Metal Flake

If you’ve ever said to yourself or even aloud, ‘When, Lord, will the kids finally combine the chrome, smoke and BBQ’d hot licks of early ZZ Top, the Plutonian noodling of Dead Moon, and the half-breed hully-gully hullabaloo of Link Wray, with the raw-spleen-on-a-Ritz cracker of Lungfish’s best work?’ your prayers have finally been answered. Their Matador debut, Chrome Cactuse is out 8/25, and they play Boot & Saddle on 9/10. Further proof that Kurt Cobain did not die in vain.
