Playing garage rock in 2010 is a conservative, nostalgic gesture. But that apparent drawback hasn't stopped Berlin's King Khan & the Shrines from infusing the 45-year-old genre with stunning vitality and creativity. Their songs are riotous party-igniters in which indelible hooks emerge from artfully arranged sonic chaos—though the band can finesse a beautiful ballad, too. Whether they're raising hell or lowering your panties, King Khan exude beaucoup soul, making the ineffable quite effable. With Unnatural Helpers and the Fresh & Onlys.
