Mardo: The New Gun

Curtis Mayfield meets Motley Crue? Prince does AC/DC? Why not? Mardo - California-based multi-instrumentalist brothers Aron and Robert Mardo, plus Sonny Sly - aren't afraid to show off their classic influences on their second album, The New Gun. What could come off derivative and insulting in another band's hands almost makes sense with these guys, who sound their best on songs like "Thin White Line" and "Tell Me," which take melodic twists and turns without slotting neatly into any one genre. Even Mardo's power-chord-heavy version of The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" entertains more than it probably should. Sure, The New Gun is a stylistic mess of incomplete song ideas (despite mixing by renowned Tom Lord-Alge), but I'll take this over major-label sensations like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Strokes anyday.
