ZZ Top has always been a slave to the production value and pop sensibility of the time. In the '70s, it was beer-drenched, bitchin' Southern rock 'n' roll and livestock on stage. In the '80s, it was over-production and music videos with furry guitars and leggy chicks. The '90s, well... let's skip that period. Thankfully, the recent trend for resurfacing rockers is a return to form. Top's Texicali EP, the band's first release since 2003, has four good, old-fashioned American cruising cuts that could probably make your sideburns grow faster. It's no Fandango!, but it's stacked with swagger and stomp-ability. Also, to display their ever-present savviness, the EP was released digitally only. Even though they're at the end of the alphabet, ZZ Top knows how to, well, stay on top. ARIS WALES
