NATURE BOYS: Self-titled: LP

Nov 16, 2010

Dirty, grungy (sorry about that word, but yeah, kind of grungy) rock that’s thick and deep. Maybe they are fans of Melvins. They got that kind of wandering heaviness but with female vocals. Wait—second song is faster, more of a Damaged feel. Third song is plucky, moody singing from the guy guitarist. Fourth song back to the heavy sludge. This is all different from the great photos of cool-looking dogs (Willard looks like a genius.) on the back cover. I expected some weepy stuff but this is more thick and real. Pleasantly surprised. Extra points for Nature Boy wrestler photos on the sleeve.
