Pressure & Time
Label: Sacred Tongue Records
Pressure & Time feels slightly less retro than previous Rival Sons releases. The opener, a sassy number equating wild sex with both road-tripping and picnicking, has that choppy oompah-oompah rhythm Jack White also loves to employ. Then again, "Young Love" is pure old school and sounds like it could be a deep cut from the Eric Burdon and The Animals catalog. "White Noise" is the best track, in which the boogie gets thrown over for a romp through hard psychedelia. The underlying rhythm, a hypno-mantra that consumes itself, is reminiscent of The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows."
