    Hidden Charms

    If you miss the gritty, forlorn bar rock championed by The Dead Weather and The Black Keys, Hidden Charms is here to cure what ails you. With big, dirty guitar riffs and hopelessly cool lyrics ("I love you 'cause you're there"), this London quartet is keeping blues rock alive with fuzzy filters and every inch of their vocal chords. It's a welcome reminder that no matter how deep we dive into the digital age, rock will always be alive and well.
