Record of the Week: NATURE BOYS “Pissy Wind/Coast to Coast” 7″


April 29th, 2015 by

NatureBoys_pissy_wind

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… NATURE BOYS are a band that people are not paying enough attention to now, but will miss when they’re gone. They combine equal parts of punk, hardcore, living on the fringes, hard living, DEAD MOON and their own inimitable style to make something that is their own. “Pissy Wind” is perfect. It’s a fast fucking song about the toxicity of surrounding yourself with people who are consumed by bad fucking vibes…or that’s what I took from it, at least. Two genders on the mic at all times. “Coast to Coast” on the flip side slows down (barely), a mid-tempo ode to dead friends (maybe???). It’s there to help you relive the pain of life or the inevitable return of something we’ve all felt, but have rarely given name to…sometimes known colloquially as “The Great Terribleness.” The bumbling of our stupid selves as we rocket through space on a dumb piece of rock. After releasing two LPs and one EP, NATURE BOYS have added new drummer Alex Moss on this record, which has tightened their whole mess up considerably. The whole band sounds more focused…concise even…and these two songs just aren’t enough for me, but I’ll wait patiently for the next few songs to trickle out of their dilapidated Kansas City homes.
