New Music: D/Wolves – ‘Tell Me Why’

D/WolvesSan Diego’s D/Wolves claim “early Weezer” as an influence, a sound that’s certainly evident in the crushing power chords of “Tell Me Why.” Between choruses, though, singer Joel Williams has some of the weird menace of Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock (and his mid-career penchant for squiggly lead guitars). It’s strong stuff — I only wish it was a Neil Young cover.
