AQ Podcast #45: Reignwolf
Published: March 06, 2019
Reignwolf’s new album Hear Me Out is spectacular, ten pieces of volcanic sensuality woven into intensely passionate soul. This is Reignwolf uncompromised, a powerful display of musical evolution which finally captures the explosive kick-drum stomping spontaneity of their live performances, and blows open the door on what the future holds. It’s the expression of long-building rock velocity, long-held promise in full bloom.
Antiquiet Podcast Ep. 45 takes place in a Seattle coffee shop, the day before the record’s release. Jordan was in high spirits, finally ready to drop a project he’d been working on perfecting for seven years. It was a long time coming, from the first time we’d seen him way back in 2012, where he defibrillated rock n’ roll, outshone Jack White and blew us right the hell away.
Intimate and explosive, raw yet finely tuned, Hear Me Out brings out the best of Jordan Cook, an inflamed nerve of virtuosic guitar expression and improvisational wizardry onstage. A trio completed by an airtight two-piece on bass (S.J. Kardash) and drums (Joseph Braley), Reignwolf takes an electrified wrecking ball to the tired, rickety claims that “rock n’ roll is dead”. Hear Me Out makes you a believer in rock alchemy. Just wait
