Album Review

It's tempting to compare Mr. Airplane Man to the White Stripes because both bands consist of just two people, have toured together, and crank out a brand of trashy blues that owes as much to the Delta as to Detroit (where the White Stripes reside and Mr. Airplane Man recorded their follow-up, Moanin'). The comparison works better in theory than in practice, however, as these women — Margaret Garrett (guitar) and Tara McManus (drums) — actually sound more like a female Gories or a grungier Holly Golightly.

Then he did the same for Mr. Airplane Man. Although the Boston duo's first effort was self-released, Sympathy would handle their subsequent recordings. Granted, MAM would stand out in any crowd, even without the assistance of an Evans, a Long Gone John, or the late Mark Sandman (Morphine), who became...
