The Nude Party – S/T The Nude Party. Released via New West Records on Vinyl LP, CD.
‘The Nude Party’ – one of 2018’s most groovy and dynamic rock records – is produced by Oakley Munson of The Black Lips and recorded in Woodstock, NY at Dreamland Recording Studios, the circa-1896 former St. John’s Church. The selftitled album finds that formidable music machine cranked all the way to cosmic.
Maybe it’s the electric waters of Lake Norman, NC, where the band spent a primordial summer, or the upstate New York vibes that have beckoned American spiritualists and storytellers for a dozen generations, but something gives these cats a glow. At very least the numerology scans. Even when heartbreak crashes the party, like on the hilarious ‘Records’, the buoyancy of the band’s demeanour negates the inevitable bummer.
From the self-aware irreverence of ‘Chevrolet Van’ to the apocalyptic resignation of ‘War Is Coming’, TheNude Party surf heavy wavelengths with elegance and grace.
For fans of The Black Lips, Velvet Underground, Foxygen.
LP pressed on 150g vinyl with digital download card.
