Over the course of three excellent albums, including their new eponymous double-disc set, Black Owls have incorporated vintage influences into their singular sound. As manifested in David Butler’s wildly expressive vocals and Ed Shuttleworth’s alternately sinewy and chunky guitar lines, the Granville, Ohio, group draws inspiration from the ’70s like a blood transfusion, gaining life and strength from The Rolling Stones, Mott the Hoople, David Bowie and Roxy Music, while infusing that Glam-era bombast with the razor sharp Punk of Television, Talking Heads and The Voidoids.
