NATURE BOYS: Self-titled: LP

Jun 14, 2014

This LP is a good mix of surf punk and mid 1980s California punk. Harmonized male and female vocals timed together. You can tell there was a lot of effort into hitting that perfectly. This is a very vocal-heavy release. Aside from some well-placed guitar solos, it doesn’t stray from a traditional or generic form of punk. However, there is a lot going on within that format. Rarely are the guitar and bass doing the same thing. I feel bad saying that nothing really stood out too much for me with this record. They seem to be great musicians—and the output of that talent is a really well-crafted record—but it lacked something to stand out and really grab my attention.
