    octave-up bass sounds better than a lot of guitar driven rock tones?

    I much preferred Death From Above 1979 in the bass/drum duo format. These dudes are pretty good, though.

    Wow. Did not expect that to be a bass making those sounds.

    Anytime someone posts "rock is dead" on here I think I'll just link this video to them.

    Some of it cops Jack White a bit too much and they get a bit "samey" after awhile.

    Having said that I dig them and that's a glorious tone...one of the best "new" sounds I've heard in awhile.

    IMO the only Jack White I take from it is the 2 member format, otherwise I get AIC, QOTSA, RATM, Muse, Chevelle, etc. vibes from it with its own flavor.

    Sounds to me like Jack White is the singer for any of those bands. I love this stuff.

    Those guys make a huge sound. The songwriting is pretty derivative of QOTSA, but there are some great riffs on their album. It has an immediacy to it that is great as well. Awesome to turn on when you need something groovy and loud to shout along to

    I need to find a rock band that has just a mandolin and drums. Just octave and OD everything down.

    Gonna have to disagree that the only relation is the 2 member format. Played this song for a buddy I wanted to introduce them to and that's the first thing that came out of his mouth, he didn't even know they were a 2 piece. Then he proceeded to google it with lots of hits agreeing and I believe the band has sited Jack as a strong influence.

    Agreed on QOTSA and some of the others. Again, I like them, I just think they'll need to branch out and not wear some of the influences on their sleeve so prominently...for me to maintain interest anyhow.



    Not hearing too much similarity amongst those singers.

    Definitely QOTSA and the tone is in the same vein as well, but he managed to come up with something new, tonewise, at the same time. We talk about tone a lot on TGP. To me, a lot of players have nice tone, but it's truly far and few between that someone has great tone and a lot of that goes to sounding different...this guy does it. Love that sound.

    That band has fooled a lot of people; the live clips at the radio station deliver as well as the studio!

    Middle Class Rut. Well, it's not mando, but it's basically Royal Blood in reverse.

    That's a curious stance and surely a hardened opinion, but I do feel like I'm experiencing rock music while at clubs in my area. It even smells like rock.
