The World’s Best American Band, this Kentucky group’s devilishly catchy second full-length, opens with the roar of an approving crowd. It is not a live album, and this sounds like a large audience packed into an amphitheater, the sort of venue White Reaper might be headlining in a more excellent world. The song that emerges is sheer self-affirming cock-rock (“Rally up and dress to kill / Lace your boots and crush your pills”), a motivational speech for greasy-haired dirtbags.

Hi howdy! It’s Tony here, wanting to thank all of you guys and gals that we’ve seen at these last few dates, which have been absolutely incredible! And one more hello to all those who we’ll be seeing soon when we’re back on the road with our boys in Spoon! .In the meantime though, check out this video of us playing “The World’s Best American Band” in front of a live audience at the historic and beautiful Metro in Chicago!

On the album, White Reaper manage to distill all the strut and swagger of Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town” into a pithy, 10-song set. The production is a bit clearer and less sludgy than on 2015’s White Reaper Does It Again, and the songs mark the quartet’s most confident collection to date. Two of them (“The World’s Best American Band” and “Little Silver Cross”) even hurtle past the four-minute mark.
