Review :: Armchair Telepathy :: Jacuzzi Boys
Bricks and Coconuts
I may be reaching behind my back to grab some shit from last year, but since it's only the 14th, it's not like you're going to hotwire a Delorean to rewind that far. The Jacuzzi Boys had a pretty good 2010, and this 7" was the highlight. This is what good garage can do: it's all nerves and teeth like an irradiated pit bull. Floridas Dying [sic] cranked this Miami band out a few years back, and I haven't seen them crawl up the coast once in that time. I'm not going to lie, though: what kind of an audience would they expect to find in DC anyways? Glad to see them find some elbow room on Mexican't Summer, even though I don't really see them getting a full length out any time soon given the label's current starting lineup (I'm not complaining, but Tamaryn?). I think the Boys would provide a lot of balance to the catalog...eh, I'm probably talking up my sleeve here, because MS did put out a 7" for Eddy Current Suppression Ring last year...so maybe the soft spot's there even though the viable market's not.
The A-side you're getting here's the best of this round-up, it's got ease, poise, and balls, too. Wut more you need, huh? Feel like fighting? Pour me another shot; I'll fight you.
