NIGHTMARE BOYZZZ: “Say What You Mean” b/w “Backyard Coffins”: 7”

What is it with the DIY South lately? True Stereo has me self-doubting that I actually have missed out on some good ‘70s stoner rock and Nightmare Boyzzz have me appreciating a band that appreciates The Beach Boys. There’s definitely a lot more mixed in; this 7” is both sunshine and the little bits of dust that look like gold as they flit from shadow to light. Or the curling smoke of a stubbed-out cigarette in an ashtray made from a flipped-over, old piston. In no hurry, almost casual. Repurposed and serving a new purpose. A very listenable two songer.
