THE EVERYMEN

Rock 'n' roll is no longer the frontier of music, no longer the source of subversive power or bleeding-edge experimentation that it seemed to be for decades. But The Everymen, a squad of six energetic bandits split between North Carolina and New Jersey, don't care. On the band's second album, the new These Mad Dogs Need Heroes, they simultaneously summon the spirit of hardcore and the sound of Springsteen, the feeling of a gospel revival and the power of The Clash. The songs, shouted out loud by raspy leader Mike V and the soulful Catherine Herrick, are pointed and magnetic, embedded with hooks that stick on the first spin. If you miss the unbridled enthusiasm of The Hold Steady's salad days, or the simple belief that rock music can feel urgent and important and forever young, The Everymen's These Mad Dogs Need Heroes may be, well, heroic. SOON and Faults open. —Grayson Haver Currin
