Charting the music: The Ettes, 'Wicked Will'

Haling from Nashville, the city that Rolling Stone magazine declared has the best music scene in America in 2011, punk rock trio the Ettes return with their fourth studio album, "Wicked Will."

Lead singer and guitarist Lindsay "Coco" Hame, backed by Maria "Poni" Silver on drums and Jeremy "Jem" Cohen on the bass guitar have a sound that bands with more than three members would sell their souls to produce. "Wicked Will" seems as if it came straight out of an underground garage punk club two decades ago. Each song is full of edge and angst. The first track, "Teeth," is a good preview for the rest of the album. Its gritty guitar rhythms are complemented by Coco's dirty, punk voice. Like a few songs on the album, the faster-paced, shorter song "Trouble With You" sounds like a song Jack White might have written.

At the moment, the Ettes are in an envious place. Not only do they live in Music City USA, but with the release of "Wicked Will," and having gone on tour with quasi-super group the Dead Weather last year, they happen to be hanging out at the top of national garage punk scene and the KDHX rock chart.

On the KDHX Charts: #2 CMJ Top 30 for August 9, 2011.

This album can be heard on: Dangerous Curves, Uncontrollable Urge and the Pop Life.
