FUTURE VIRGINS: Self-titled: 7”

From the first five notes, I knew this was gonna be awesome. This is a southern “supergroup” consisting of two guys from Sexy and two guys from the Jack Palance Band, and it’s every bit as good as those two bands in their finest moments. It’s especially nice to hear Ashley return to the blown-out hollering we all fell in love with on the first Sexy LP. I’m sure that, just like me, you were worried after the polished, squeaky clean singing on Boma Ye that he wouldn’t be able to bounce back, but these expertly written songs of love and life and heartbreak are exactly what I was hoping for. This record is absolutely wonderful and I sure hope an LP is in the foreseeable future.
