The Von Bondies
The punch heard 'round the music world may have catapulted the Von Bondies into the spotlight, but their sophomore album Pawn Shoppe Heart puts to rest any doubts that the Detroit foursome's talent is superceded by a smackdown from their one-time supporter and White Striper Jack "Cold-Cock" White. With new producer Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads, Modern Lovers) and a freshly inked major label record deal, the VBs can hold their own. Britain's music Bible NME describes the latest record as "representing the perfect thrift store-clad antidote to tearily solipsistic emo, boneheaded MTV mope-rock, and sexless indie warbling." -- Jon Wilkins
