Grizzled and Mighty

Posted by on Fri, Feb 1, 2013 at 1:59 PM

(Neumos) Can you make room in your harried life for one more blues-rock duo? This is the last time I'll ask... probably. Seattle's the Grizzled Mighty give the game away with their name, but that's okay. Mystique isn't necessary here; guitarist/vocalist Ryan Granger and drummer Whitney Petty's songs sound massive, raw, and as ornery as the Old Testament. They may not have the hook-mongering skills of the White Stripes, but they're closer to approaching Led Zeppelin's gravid Delta stomp and raunchy crunch than Jack White's ever come. And, like Zep, the Grizzled Mighty have their gentle acoustic moments, too. But they're at their best when grinding with maximum torque and vengefulness.
