Crushed Out, Desert Noises, Summer Cannibals
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[SURF WAX AMERICANA] If Meg actually knew how to play the drums and Jack wasn't so concerned with proving his blues pedigree (and expressed at least a minor interest in learning to surf), then the White Stripes might've sounded a bit like Crushed Out. On its debut full-length, Want to Give, the Brooklyn-based two-piece plays a similarly crunchy, garage-y take on midcentury American music, but with more swing, less arty artifice and a tinge of surf-rock twang. It won't blow anyone's mind, but it'll certainly jolt everyone's hips.
