ANDY ELLIS—SENIOR EDITOR Justin Kalk Orchestra SuperStar Records VoLcanO In terms of sonically imaginative rock guitar, JKO pushes all my buttons in exactly the right way—including a few I didn’t know I had. Kalk has chops to burn, but he seems more interested in mangling his Strat than humbling listeners with his dexterity. Hints of Hendrix lurkin his playing, but Kalk’s songs and freaked-out tones are completely his own.

Slamming grooves, ripping fretwork, unexpected twists and turns—perfect music to rattle the windows.
