Led by brassy, sassy singer Tina Halladay, Sheer Mag crank out the original tunes on their debut full-length album, Need to Feel Your Love, with punky energy, but the songwriting is rooted more heavily in ’70s classic rock. The opening track, “Meet Me in the Street,” swaggers with AC/DC-style power chords and Halladay’s snarling vocals, whereas “Suffer Me” is more of a poppy slice of Freedom Rock. “Expect the Bayonet” belies its title with a power-pop arrangement, while “Pure Desire” combines the straight-ahead rock of Thin Lizzy with a laid-back and funky arrangement. The variety of ’70s styles — from the echoing pop yearning of “Until You Find the One” to the Suzi Quatro thunder of “Can’t Play It Cool” — feels like an old K-Tel compilation, except everything is by one band. Also at the Echo Wednesday, Oct. 4.
