I only learned about Sons of Huns in February, with the release of their 11-track Live at the Banana Stand recording. I didn't know anything about them when I started listening; five minutes later, that live album—which sounds fantastic—had effectively annihilated every trace of wintry sluggishness from my brain. Nothing clears the cobwebs from the attic like some metal in the garage. A few months later, they have a new 7-inch with an accompanying video for "Leaving Your Body," evidence of a true commitment to disseminating their eyebrow-singeing rock to the masses. Unlike most garage acts these days (and there are a lot of them), Sons of Huns aren't a retro act. They don't sound like star-struck fans of the Ramones, the MC5, or the Stooges. Revisiting the past can be a lot of fun, but hard rock has a future, and Sons of Huns are writing it. REBECCA WILSON
