The Broken Rhodes
Where: Phoenix, AZ
Sounds Like: The Black Keys/ Kings of Leon
WOS Song Pick: Rolling Hills
With corporate mediocrity being jammed down our throats like a spoonful of Nickelback, it’s hard not to miss the authenticity and foot-stomping goodness of a hard-hitting rock group. Armed with a full inventory of driving rhythms, this righteous trio of Arizona rockers are right at home crushin’ out blues grooves on stage. In the studio, they take a smooth and confident approach to their heart-pounding work. The Broken Rhodes have already found their way onto my Alternative/Garage Rock iPod playlist; right between Wolfmother and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
The Broken Rhodes will be releasing their new album, “Try Harder,” on April 19th at Martini Ranch. Stay tuned to WOS for a full CD review and interview with the band.
