Tweak Bird by Tweak Bird * * *

Caleb and Ashton Bird are a pair of brothers who kick up an almighty racket -- Black Sabbath doing jazz being one of the better descriptions of their controlled primal rock. Metal riffs and saxophone solos somehow manage to coexist on the best songs -- best heard loud, very loud.

The siblings' willingness to try everything and anything can be both hugely rewarding and a pain in the behind -- sometimes in the course of the same song -- but there's more than enough evidence here to suggest that Tweak Bird's stoner rock is no passing fancy.

Oh, and their live shows -- studies in abandon a la Les Savy Fav -- are fast becoming the stuff of legend.
