Very Good, Based on 1 Critic

On their 1995 album Soul Food, which sounds like it was recorded in a deep fryer, Greg Cartwright's old band the Oblivians released a song with an n-bomb in its title. The Oblivians were Memphis garage-punk kingpins, and Soul Food sums up their scene: white edgelords aping the boundary-pushing rebelliousness of Little Richard and Ike Turner without considering the racist conditions that gave early rock'n'roll its sense of desperation. So what's a garage rocker to do when he outgrows the need to push people's buttons? With Reigning Sound, Cartwright has spent the years focusing on craft instead of provocation: slowing down and fashioning songs that tend to sound like well-chosen covers of obscure garage, soul, and girl-group gems.
