Nude Beach - II LP

Nude Beach Records (2012)

Yeah, this is the first pressing that the band released themselves, not the new reissued version on Other Music/Fat Possum, so that's nice. I've been sitting on this record for a little bit, not exactly sure what I wanted to say about it. I could throw out some of my favorite adjectives like poppy and catchy, but if you really want to boil down the essence of this band, all you really need to know is they sound just like early era Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. That's a compliment, because this record is outstanding.

It's one of those records that just feels warm and comfortable, like an old friend. I don't have the bands first record, I remember checking out a stream of it somewhere and not being too impressed, I should probably revisit. But with II, this is a band I will be looking out for going forward. It is simply a great record.
