Wolfmother

When Aussie retro-rock act Wolfmother lost its rhythm section last summer, fans wondered whether frontman Andrew Stockdale could convincingly carry on the name. The singer proves his Ozzy-meets-Jack-White wail and knack for hooky guitar riffs remain intact on the songs from Wolfmother's sophomore effort, Cosmic Egg, recorded with the new group expanded to a quartet. The tunes aren't as memorable or propulsive as those from the band's debut, and Stockdale provides some wince-inducing moments with his corn-fed balladry and cheesy lyrics, but the outfit still offers plenty of bong-wielding '70s rawk for its legions of fans.
