iTunes Editors’ Notes

Considering that all three members of the Australian power trio Wolfmother are barely over the legal voting age, their homage to ‘70s hard rock is surprisingly authentic and heartfelt. Their self-titled debut album, following a couple of promising EPs, is rife with Black Sabbath riffage, Black Oak Arkansas boogie and the bare-chested lead singer histrionics that make a Robert Plant inspired lyric like “Woman/ You know that you’re a woman/ You got to be a woman / I got the feelin’ of love” sound completely at home. While the Led Zeppelin and Blue Cheer shadows loom large, Wolfmother manage to pull out their own variations on these primordial, blues-based themes by keeping their approach as pared down as their originators. The temptation might be there to expand on the basic palette; however, these boys intuitively understand the power of the riff. “Dimension,” “White Unicorn” and “Where Eagles Have Been” never dilute the winning formula. And when they do add a finishing touch, it’s the artlessly added Jethro Tull inspired flute solo of “Witchcraft.” At 13 tracks, the album is overlong, but with plenty to recommend.

Cool Enough for Hipsters, Heavy Enough for Metalheads

Album openings can make or break a CD. MC5 used preaching about revolution to start their classic "Kick out the Jams." Jimi Hendrix used the classic bumping riff of "Purple Haze" to kick off "Are You Experienced." What do Wolfmother use? A high-pitched, adrenaline soaked scream. Those 3 seconds signify what Wolfmother is all about- rockin' out and not caring what people think of it. Yes, my friends, indie rock ROCKS again. On this album you'll find the best of the 70's bands you loved- psychedlic lyrics, angular drums, riff-based songs, and electric organ solos (!). Here's the self-titled debut track by track- 1. Dimension- My favorite song on the album. This is based around a blues progression, but the main riff sounds like classic Led Zep. The band does a great job of going from breakdowns to an explosive chorus. Also, Big Muff Pi is in this. 2. White Unicorn- Relax, and let the three boys from Sydney sail you away to a magical land of carnivals and, uh, unicorns. There's a great interlude about 3/4 of the way into this song. 3. Woman- Enough relaxation. Time for an all-out, balls to the wall jam. Groovy triplet solos are complemented by some Doors-like keyboard. 4. Where Eagles have Been- Not as rockin' as Woman, but still an intriguing trippy ballad. 5. Apple Tree- A good song, but it sounds too much like a certain famed candy-colored duo from Michigan... 6. Joker and the Theif- Another groovy jam full of great riffs and epic organ. 7. Colossal- The name says it all- in the beginning this song swaggers like a giant advancing on a remote village, then picks up speed like a Pegasus flying in the sky. 8. Mind's Eye- My second favorite. An epic ballad about the mind's power over our vision is cut in the middle by- you guessed it- rockin' electric organ turning the slow, somber symphony into an energetic jam. 9. Pyramid- Another favorite. Rhytmic bass keeps the beat while a haunting guitar riff freaks us out, before this turns into a rocking march full of "ancient empires falling" and "love in disguise." 10. Witchcraft- A jaunty 3/4 Led Zep jam about a certain female who "drank from the craft." And I'm not going to spoil anything, but keep your ears open around 2:12 into this song. (Flute solo!!!) 11. Tales- A powerful, vivacious song about self-power in the face of change. 12. Love Train- All aboard, baby, 'cause this song's got enough bongos and soul lyrics to make Herbie Hancock go on LSD. 13. Vagabond- Wolfmother turn out their gargantuan album with an uplifting song that brings to mind the first rays of sunshine peeking through the clouds. Overall, 4.5 stars. Strongly recommended.

Catch these guys on the way up!

Wolfmother dominated Coachella. They also won best band at SXSW. They are playing every major festival this year for a reason...THEY DOMINATE ON STAGE. The lead singer has so much stage presence. If you like rock/alt/70s psych/metal...you will really dig this band. I can't say enough about how good this album and this band is. You are probably the most uncool kid in school if you aren't into this band. So don't be that guy. Buy this album.

Classic Style

This self-titled album features a collection of previously released tunes, two of which were re-recorded for the album (White Unicorn and Apple Tree). New listeners will trip on the three-piece power of Wolfmother with clear influences of Cream, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. The fans waiting for the album might be taken back by the re-tread tunes, but there is enough new material to satisfy...for now. The album is stacked 13 deep and holds up its end with riffs bold and cold. Don't hesitate if you have been waiting for the next classic rock band.

Biography

Formed: 2000 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australi

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Truly a band out of time, the Australian power trio Wolfmother were conceived in 2000 — about 30 years too late, considering that the musicians' psychedelic brand of proto-heavy metal sounded similar to the late-'60s/early-'70s craft of Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist/organist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett, Wolfmother took the initiative of recording a four-track demo in 2004 for the purpose of booking shows.
