Staff Pick

The self-titled debut from the Wadesboro Four is already climbing the charts at influential radio stations like Seattle’s KEXP. Full of three-minute burners that run the stylistic gamut from the Ramones to post-punk, New Wave to Skynyrd, the Sammies’ unbridled enthusiasm and unpretentious approach reminds us why we fell so hard for rock & roll in the first place.
