Hot Apostles

The main guitar riff on "Get It On," the opening cut on Hot Apostles' self-titled eleven-song debut, sounds like a loose take on Joan Jett's "I Love Rock 'n' Roll." While frontwoman Eryn Swissdorf has more of a clean delivery than Jett's smoky rasp, the two women share a similar commanding swagger. As far as loving rock and roll, this five-piece, whose members have played in a number of local bands, clearly has an affinity for the hard-driving, no-holds-barred classic rock of Thin Lizzy, AC/DC and Aerosmith, to the point that some of the tunes have an almost timeless feel, as if they'd been recorded a few decades ago — and that's certainly not a bad thing.
