Independent

4/5 stars

If you’re looking for some brawny rock ‘n’ roll in Western Pennsylvania, Chrome Moses might be the band for you. The Pittsburgh-based trio has won over fans with their muscular tunes, a trend that continues on new release Tamaraine. The four-song EP was recorded on two-inch tape, a smart choice for a band that embraces such an old-school rock sound. From the opening seconds of the first track “Horse Faced Lynn,” Chrome Moses makes its presence known, delivering a sinister four-minute blast of guitar, bass, and drums. Second track “Can’t You Hear Me Coming?” can’t be ignored as the slide guitar commands your attention before boiling down into a bluesy rock jam that would please early White Stripes fans. The sweet “Butterfly” is a jarring change of pace amid the muscle, a solid song that’s a victim of the EP’s short format, but Chrome Moses returns to the brawn on the squalling “No Enemies” to close out a welcome dose of old-school rock. – Alex Bieler
