Nude Beach (2010) s/t (LP) 

Nude Beach

Self titled

2010

Mandible Records


Debut from this Brooklyn trio…power pop punk..sounding somewhat like Pittsburgh’s Beach Slang (who came after this band) and the Cynics (who came long before) and probably all the bands that influenced those bands…the Replacements… Springsteen…bands of the 60s–both the American garage power pop of that decade and bands like Buffalo Springfield…the earthy elements recalling Tom Petty…even chucking an easily recognizable instrumental nod to Memphis R&B, which is much appreciated since where would we be without the contributions of that town.


This is punk rock most anyone would enjoy, from your high school teacher to even your aging baby boomer aunt.  Enjoyable set, noteworthy 21st century garage.
