Just got an advance of the new Wolfmother album Cosmic Egg, set for release next Tuesday October 27. I’ll check it out and post my thoughts soon.
As you might recall, leader Andrew Stockdale parted ways with everyone else in the band (Quit or sacked? Was Humpty pushed or did he fall? Cosmic Egg indeed). It will be interesting to hear how much of the trademark Wolfmother sound (or the “fill-in-the-name-of-your-favorite-heavy-band-circa-1973-from-whom-Wolfmother-nicked-their-sound” sound) remains intact with the new lineup.
I saw them at Bonnaroo 2007 and they really had the whole pre-Energy Crisis vibe a’happening. I’m set to see them onstage again in a couple weeks as well.
