You know, I fell off the White Mystery train for a while. The eponymous debut burned, on Blood & Venom knew what they had going, but then it kinda slid for me. No hate, just sometimes you fall outta love. But I’m digging on their new track and its like old times. “Best Friend” has got a groove, and that groove is infectious as hell. Alex White’s still got the yelp and this has moved away from their typical garage power groove towards something looser; pounding keys, shuffling drums and White’s vocals just riding out the funk like it was an everyday affair. Hell, brother Jack knows that sometimes you gotta put down the guitars and pick up a piano to keep things interesting. I’ve always been a devoted lover of Get Behind Me Satan, maybe White Mystery are following suit, picking up the yoke and pushing to the barroom rollick that soothes the garage woes like a salve. I hope that the rest of this puppy simmers like this, that’s for sure.
