Trading in power pop that calls out The Exploding Hearts and feels reminiscent of Barreracudas and Gentleman Jesse, Nightmare Boyzzz dig in on their debut LP for Slovenly. The band has knocked out a string of singles that hinted at the kind of elastic pop on display for Bad Patterns and given the chance to flesh it out into a longform bit of bounce and hop, they come through with a collection that fizzes at the brim. Every bit as fun as the best bits of garage punk emanating from the South these days, its unconcerned, uncorked, unrestrained and ready to pick a fight with the best of 'em. Damn fine work and one's to look out for in the next year.
