For well over a quarter of a century, Hoodoo Gurus have been one of Australia's most revered Rock bands, playing a visceral mix of Power Pop, Garage and Surf Rock. They've never sounded as fresh, relevant and energized as they do on their ninth studio album, 'Purity of Essence.'  

The National, Hoodoo Gurus, Kris Kristofferson, Sage Francis, Otis Taylor and Marco Benevento

Before I push on to this week's album reviews, I feel compelled to add my condolences to the many thousands being offered in the wake of Ronnie James Dio's passing. As a teenager discovering FM radio in the '70s, I came across a sound one night that was unlike anything I'd heard before: blazing hard rock guitars, thundering bass, hall-of-the-mountain-king drumming and, rising above it all, that soaring, otherworldly voice. The DJ announced it as a song from the new Elf album, and I had a new favorite band. His later work with Rainbow and the resurrected Black Sabbath cemented Dio's place in music history.
