Reviews of new releases from Shooter Jennings, White Rabbits, and Say Anything

Posted on

Shooter Jennings, Family Man
The turgid psych-rock of 2010’s Black Ribbons behind him, Jennings returns with a rowdy, heartfelt country disc that would’ve made his late father, Waylon, proud. Tom Morello guests on the Celtic-tinged ”The Long Road Ahead.” BMikael Wood

White Rabbits, Milk Famous
These Brooklyn indie rockers often get compared to Spoon, maybe because Spoon’s Britt Daniel produced their last album. Now they’ve tapped Spoon producer Mike McCarthy for their third set, which amps up the dour electronics to welcome, propulsive effect. But ”Temporary” still sounds like a certain Texas band — if that band were slightly goth. BMelissa Maerz

Say Anthing, Anarchy, My Dear
Keeping up with the emo stalwarts’ frontman Max Bemis, with his genre leaps and gallows-humor sprints, can be daunting. Like a good long-distance run, Anarchy rewards with bursts of sonic endorphins (see the sublime ”Peace Out”). Just remember to hydrate along the way. B+Kyle Anderson
