Their second album is dropping on 4/20, a day notorious for lighting up some trees and having a good time, and that’s what the new LP makes you want to do.
The boys from Nashville, comprised of Wez, Seth and Zack, have garnered such praise from AOL, Village Voice and Third Man Records.
There is a reason for it, though it’s only April, it’s easily the best rock and roll album I’ve heard all year.
I haven’t even mentioned their name yet ‘cause their music speaks volumes, but they’re Natural Child.
Natural Child’s new record is 10-tracks long and it speeds through; it’s so damn hard to turn off. They’re throwbacks for sure, a 70’s rock sound that makes you think of the Stones, Hendrix or CCR. They also get a little country on the record too, that’s most evident on “No One Writes Sad Songs Anymore.”
Some of my favorite tracks include “DTV,” “Ain’t Gonna Stop” and “8 AM Blues.”
“DTV” is a toe-tapper for sure, could pass for metal record easily. Their Rolling Stones-swag couldn’t be any more evident on “8 AM Blues.”
The boys bring a lot of classic rock acts to mind but they manage to make the sound completely their own.
To be honest with you, I’m friggin pissed I didn’t know of these guys and just missed their tour date in New York City.
I’m so caught up in these guys I’ve failed to mention the name of the record, For the Love of The Game.
If you love music as much as I do, cop this record.
