New releases from Elle King and Axis: Sova 

Elle King, Shake the Spirit
  • Elle King, Shake the Spirit
Elle King, Shake the Spirit (RCA) – The L.A. blues-rocker comes back with 13 heartfelt riff-heavy tracks like “Baby Outlaw.” While a pruning of the orchestral breaks and confessional spoken word might help, one gets the feeling King might prefer her cheesier moments most of all.

Axis: Sova, Shampoo You
  • Axis: Sova, Shampoo You
Axis: Sova, Shampoo You (God?/Drag City) – If Greta Van Fleet epitomize the shameless lifting of all things Zep, Brett Sova’s Chicago band fares better as it borrows licks from Jimmy Page and other early-‘70s guitarists. The album is also seasoned with hints of the ‘90s distortion favored by Modest Mouse and Johnny Marr, in the process creating something unique.
