The Dexter Romweber Duo

The artistic lineage connecting the White Stripes to North Carolina's probable prince of guitar grime tends to be overstated, largely since the latter also enjoys using the guitar-and-drums duo format for his blues-rock and is signed to the label run by Jack White. But Romweber's music is actually of a decidedly different breed, more indebted to Elvis and rockabilly than anything so overtly alt-rock. When it succeeds, it's not through barely controlled explosions of guitars or vocals but dark lyrics about women and the devil.
