Chicago's newest, youngest, brightest shining star of revivalism is The Redwalls. In the case of The Redwalls, the guys shun the sounds of today for the sounds of the '60s. Specifically, The Beatles, The Kinks, Stardust-era Bowie and The Rolling Stones creep their way into De Nova
's 12 tracks and leave pretty much anything that came later playing second fiddle influence-wise. Sound good? You'll like it, then. These guys are so dead-on, you could easily convince friends that “Rock and Roll” was a Hamburg-era Beatles song. If you're looking for something beyond hero-worship and imitation, though, you'll need to keep looking.
