This isn't an official review ('cause it's to early for that), but let me just say that what I've heard of the new White Reaper album, White Reaper Does It Again (out soon on Polyvinyl), indicates that this is gonna be one of the best albums of 2015.
(Aw shucks. Who'm I kiddin'? I've heard the whole record and it is magnificent!)
Coming on like the band early Supergrass wanted to be, "Make Me Wanna Die" is supremely catchy, delightfully noisy RAWK. Not since Fu Manchu or The Muffs has an American band so expertly bridged the legacies of The Stooges and The Ramones.
While you're waiting for White Reaper Does It Again to drop in July on Polyvinyl, play this about a dozen times, bang your head, thrash your mane -- whatever -- just rock brothers and sistas!
