Western Star- Any Way How LP. Western Star are a young band from Baltimore and are one of the most intensely, straight up rock and roll bands I've heard this year. Their second album ‘Any Way How’ sets them apart from a lot of the others because of their tremendous hooks, choruses and genuine heartfelt soulful delivery. At times it's hard to tell whether you're listening to a country song, a heartland hard rock ripper, or a '70s-era metal rager. The melding of all three creates excellent results. These dudes shred like Thin Lizzy, call out the ghost of Grand Funk Railroad and have the back country strut of the Old 97's.
