Nude Beach – Suspicious Beasts, Honey
Brooklyn band Nude Beach is very much a part of the DIY scene, but it’s always been more in spirit than in sound; sure, they’re as beer-soaked, overdriven and raw as any group around, yet as hard as they’ve tried to ignore it, the trio could never quite shake the rock & roll of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen which sound-tracked their Long Island youth, and battered vinyl from the Byrds, the Replacements and the Jam sits side by side in their record collections with the hardcore and indie LPs and 7”s that brought the friends together in the first place. In an increasingly fractured music scene, Chuck, Ryan and Jimmy play against fashion and deliver straight up rock & roll, and moreover, they do it better than anyone has in a long time.
The band is currently touring in support of their new single What Can Ya Do on Other Music Recording Co. / Fat Possum.
Suspicious Beasts – Formed by Brooklyn resident / Japanese expatriate Yusuke Okada (Golden Clouds, Blotto) back in his hometown of Tokyo in 2010, Suspicious Beasts throw some real fucking fresh kindling onto the never-ending-but-always-cooling-down campfire of modern psychey-garage rock. With influences from The Outsiders, Love, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Alex Chilton, and more, The Beasts BEAT. They jam. They drive. They get fucked up and someone steals their shirts. They get dark. They wanna fly to the moon, but first, they’re doing it in America.
