Big Head Todd and the Monsters' eleventh studio album, New World Arisin', makes good on its forward-facing title with what might be the brashest rock and roll of their career. The record explores a variety of subgenres, from the funky ("Trip") to the unexpectedly punky ("Detonator"), with stops along the way for raging country-rock ("Damaged One"), expansive storytelling in the Van Morrison/early Springsteen mode ("Wipeout Turn"), a Jimi Hendrix cover ("Room Full of Mirrors"), and, in the title track, "New World Arisin'," a Charley Patton-inspired tune that ended up having what co-founder Todd Park Mohr describes as "a heavy metal/gospel feel." 

But if there's a dominant musical motif to
New World Arisin', it's "straight-up rock-pop," says Mohr. That contemporary approach might come as a slight surprise to hardcore fans that saw the Monsters take a seriously rootsy turn or two in the last 10 years. But this time the blues take a definite back seat to the unapologetically mainstream instincts that had Big Head Todd going platinum in the mid-'90s with the album Sister Sweetly, which spawned the rock radio hits "Broken Hearted Savior," "Bittersweet," and "Circle."
