Album Review

The Husbands share a little love for '60s pop/rock while chalking out a macho rock sound that would make Joan Jett proud on their debut album, Introducing the Sounds Of.... It's safe to say the this first impression is far from pleasant, for Sadie Shaw and Sarah Reed give a little guff with their wild, hungry guitar work. They don't have time nor do they care to be nice. Rock & roll isn't supposed to be particularly kind, and the Husbands are quick on the uptake for this 14-song surf-rock-streaked set.

They honestly don't need an introduction.
