Analog Daze, The Blackhounds CL Recommends

When: Fri., March 9 2012
Price: $10
ANALOG DAZE/THE BLACKHOUNDS Self-described as “jangledelic,” this Charlotte three-piece lets that Rickenbacker ring while raising a considerable racket. But Analog Daze’s brand of jangle is less British invasion, and more the dusty psychedelia of ’80s paisley underground outfits like True West and Green on Red. Guitarist Craig Hanks’ fretwork come straight outta The Dream Syndicate’s “Medicine Show”. But the Daze is also grounded in the acid punk-gone-country ethos of The Meat Puppets, while KJ Johnson’s full-throated ramshackle vocals summon up The Replacements on a five-day bender. Tinged with country sorrow and wide-open-road Americana, the Queen City-based BlackHounds rock hard and rootsy. Come for the keening harmonies and scorched earth twin guitars that stick to your ribs, but stay for the solid songwriting that burrows into your brain. (Pat Moran)
