Thieves, “No Motive” (Revival). The second full-length album from this hard-edged but melodic rock foursome shows big-league potential. The guitars hit hard, the vocals ring out clear, and the production captures the band’s considerable energy without pushing too far into overdrive. Release show Nov. 25 at Sidewinder. Here’s an album-sampler video:
