With their gritty, rootsy rock and retro bluesy swagger, the Redwalls would make a great double bill with Kings of Leon. On the Chicago-based quartet's major-label debut (following 2003's independently released Universal Blues), the band, while not breaking any new ground, delivers a sound that is twangy and tough, with plenty of soul and garage-punk attitude. Just check out the rebel anthem "It's Alright," with its '60s stomp, raucous energy and lead singer Logan Baren's bad-boy vocal. Other highlights include "Thank You," a heart-on-ripped-sleeve declaration.
