4 Stars

The optimistically titled fourth disc from these Midwestern garage revivalists is not unlike the racket bassist Jack Lawrence and drummer Patrick Keeler kick up alongside Jack White and Brendan Benson in the Raconteurs. But whereas White relives rock history in fever dreams, Greenhornes singer-guitarist Craig Fox envisions the past through heavy eyelids. His rollicking punk tunes are coolly detached, and his psychedelic mudslides often laze in drooged-out repose: “Cave Drawings,” a first-acid-trip vision of “floating sunbeams of satin,” evokes a chill-out room from 1966.
