Nude Beach
Nude Beach II
Nude Beach Records [2012]

Nude Beach. (I had to say it one more time). Brooklyn garage revival meets poorly produced power pop…if there was ever such a thing.  It's an applaudable formula when you can throw catchy, rugged middle class vocals over paisley twinkling riffs and a filthy, aggressive rhythm section. The tracks on Nude Beach II borrow from sounds as distant as 60's San Francisco hair farm rock, 80's and early 90's obnoxious melodic garage and snotty British new wave, and the growing, popular sounds of grungy, regional indie. Every other song on this record sounds like that one ignored track on a popular classic rock LP that I love more than any of my friends can openly admit enjoying. Decent stuff.
