Like a white-hot white-noise machine, Canada's Constantines play dense indie-rock with three extra layers of noise. The quintet doesn't sound like Sonic Youth, but if you like Sonic Youth, you'll like them. Another obscure Sonic Youth connection: They're big Neil Young fans and sometimes reconvene as Horsey Craze, playing Young covers. The band's deep lyrics have earned comparisons to Springsteen and the Clash. If you like the idea of the Arcade Fire, but all that "My Body Is a Cage" whining puts you to sleep, frontman Steve Lambke's tortured-soul gut-howls will set your spirit free.
