Tyler Bryant's thing won't be for everyone — the young guitar-hero-on-the-rise's approach isn't built on subtlety, modesty or pensive lyrical depth. On the new From The Sandcastle, he and his band The Shakedown go big: big riffin’, big solos, big drum stomps, guitarmony-laden choruses, hoots, hollers. Vibe-wise, it calls back to the bold and unabashed arena rock of the ’80s and that era's embrace of wild livin’ and up-front instrumental prowess. "We get loud and we get high / Just livin' out on the run," Bryant sings in "Good Life," which seems to aim for Tom Petty (who's name-checked in the song) but lands a little more Buckcherry. Bryant & Co. commit to that big, blunt arena rock completely, and they deliver exceptionally — their 20-year-old frontman can't hope to avoid becoming his generation's chops-nerd hero, and, given his band's rock-era inclinations, the object of many, many a cougar's affections.
