Three Times Infinity (Norton Records)
By: Alex Steininger
Detroit's The Hentchmen, who have been rumored to be working on a mini-LP with White Stripes' front man Jack White for Italy Records, sound straight out of 1966 on their latest, Three Times Infinity. Their primitive garage-pop stripped down to the guitar, drums, and organ essentials, it sounds like very few, even unlike the others attempting the same thing. That is because The Hentchmen are dedicated to their craft, allowing no modern influences to steer their vision off course. In doing so, they create something timeless, something that would have found plenty of airtime in the 60's, and will now have indie kids everywhere salivating at the marvelous retro-rock feat this band has accomplished out of sheer love and admiration for the garage rock pioneers. This is juicy, thick, and tasty rock 'n' roll as pure and uncompromising as it comes. I'll give this an A.
