With its punchy toms and grooves that haul ass like 18-wheelers down a mountain road, Wild Child is a solid entry in neo-Jack White, retro-stained roots rock. What sets Tyler Bryant apart is his love for sleazy swagger. Rather than get hung up on Americana's need for tasteful authenticity, the guitar whiz turns all sassy in ways that recall Tesla and Heartbreak Station-era Cinderella. This really comes through on "Say a Prayer," boasting as it does a booming chorus of "mamas," and the dry-hump funk of "You Got Me Baby." Another keeper is the glam-tinged "Cold Heart."
