From the very first few bars of "Boom Boom," the opening track from Tango Alpha Tango's debut full-length, Black Cloud, two things are immediately apparent. First, songwriter Nathan Trueb's knack for capturing the grit of dirty desert blues is infectious. Secondly, this niche of authenticated blues-rock doesn't come off as cocky, like so many of its ilk; it just sounds fun, full of clichéd rock 'n' roll lyrics about getting high and lusting after women, and comes teeming with an arsenal of back-porch riffs and driving rhythms. Their magic, though, lies in their ability to shift gears into grimy psych on tracks like "Brahma Bull." On Black Cloud, Tango Alpha Tango is no one-trick pony. RYAN J. PRADO
