Featured Artist: Wolf & Cub

Taking a cue from both legendary forebears (Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath) and their Australian peers (Wolfmother), Wolf & Cub are loud, heavy and awesome. The band’s songs – rich with swirling guitars, huge drums and ground-shaking bass – are epic journeys, not mere psych-rock rehashes. On their latest effort, Science And Sorcery (Last Gang Records), some atmospheric innovation crops up amidst the massive drum breakdowns, but a dark, shoegazing heaviosity remains at the core. “The Loosest Of Gooses (Go On Your Own)” was featured in a recent Young Guns webisode.
