The barebones twosome of guitar and drums is a relatively recent development in popular music, made commonplace by The White Stripes, who were inventive enough to make the pared-down arrangements work. Portland garage-metal-punk duo The Ax aren't as interested in varying the limited template as they are in beefing it up to full power, a throttling twin assault that's intent on crushing the listener like a flapjack. These guys take the funnest part of rock music—the wicked riff—and bring it to the forefront, exaggerating it so that nothing else in the song matters. Our Queen of Dirt is 14 short nuggets of evil-sounding, down-tuned garage rock.
