Whitestarr
Whitestarr (music from the forthcoming debut album)
Contango Records
www.whitestarr.com


Is it classic rock of the new millennium? Could be. If all else, I can say that this band is bringing back a sound that could get my parents interested. And that is a feat in itself!

From just the sampler CD, I know that I would be curious to see these guys in concert. The long hair, crazy shirts, beards and sunglasses definitely set the stage for this new rock 'n' roll album. And I don't believe that anyone recently has been able to utter those words, "new rock 'n' roll". The 2000s have not been the decade for bands drawing influences from artists of the past. But, Whitestarr has done it and I might add, done it well. In these four songs I get a strong sense of Led Zeppelin style mixed with some early Aerosmith attitude. Combine the huge rock hooks with classic themes and you get songs like: "Luv Machine" and "Sunshine Girl". These guys are bringing a whole new flavor of music to concerts which this generation has not yet seen. It should be interesting.
