Power trio White Reaper emerged out of Luisville, Kentucky and is ready to blow out eardrums everywhere.
White Reaper are the latest in a series of highly competent garage rock acts working to bring the genre out of its 60s fixation and dose it up with all the sweat, energy, and tight pants that 70s proto-punk inspired. Their recent eponymous EP on Polyvinyl records features six headbang-worthy anthems that blend and effortlessly switch between garage, power pop, and classic fuzz rock ‘n’ roll riffage. This shit is what blitzkrieg bopping in 2014 is all about. For fans of MC5, Real Kids, Midwest punk, Hendrix, etc.
White Reaper will be playing at Strange Matter on Sunday, Oct. 27 with Sneaky Creeps, The Milkstains and Cherry Pits.
