Albums Of The Week: Dex Romweber | Good Thing Goin’

The retro-rock rebel stays true to nostalgic form on his first album in seven years.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Good Thing Goin’ is the first new studio album in seven years from the punkabilly guitar legend. On this album, Dex Romweber finds a balance between battered guitars, piano ballads, and reverb-drenched vibes while powered by the inspiration of classic gospel and soulful R&B.

Good Thing Goin’ is a solid collection of new original songs and covers that work as a genre-blending playlist of his entire career. Sounds shift from primitive rockabilly to swinging instrumentals to surf rock to crooning ballads.

Dex Romweber was and is a huge influence on my music,” says Jack White. “I owned all of his records as a teenager, and was thrilled at the fact that we were able to play together recently on tour. His attitude towards music is remarkable. His songwriting, along with his love of classic American music from the south, be it rockabilly, country or R&B, is one of the best-kept secrets of the rock ’n’ roll underground.”
