Boasting an enviable lineage – two sons of Memphis producer Jim Dickinson (Big Star, the Replacements), one son of bluesman R.L. Burnside – North Mississippi Allstars aim to put a new spin on Southern rock. Their third album, Polaris, is a bluesier – and more laid-back – take than that of fellow revivalists Kings of Leon, and when it works, as on the strings-laden ”One to Grow On” (featuring guest vox from Oasis’ Noel Gallagher), ”Polaris” bears serious fruit.
