GHOST WOLVES This is an instance of a new band transcending both its influences and the inherent gimmick of a purposefully anachronistic style. Blanco, Texas, guitar-and-drums duo Ghost Wolves plays visceral, pounding blues-rock. Yeah, I know, The White Stripes and The Black Keys got there first. But Ghost Wolves, refreshingly rowdy and reckless, avoids those bands’ self-seriousness. Overdrive becomes a living, breathing, tangible thing in Carley Wolf’s slide guitar work, while Jonny Wolf’s insistent bass drum drives the duo’s stomp-and-shout. Are those real last names? Can’t be.
