Here’s the third album from Jacuzzi Boys, and they’ve decided to go self-titled this time. Their ‘Live At Third Man’ LP resulted in probably my favourite review in Norman history from the much-missed Dave (f'realzies. Look it up), but what’s in store this time round? Well, it’s a neon ‘90s-tinged power-pop soup of chunky guitars and dreamy vocals with super-catchy hooks and often a bit of glam stomp to the riffs, at its best points mixing Tame Impala-ish dreaminess with a post-grunge chunk and relentless poppiness that reminds me of TI’s sister band Pond.

It’s a kind of bold and energetic late ‘90s style widescreen indie rock which can sometimes seem a little over-polished but like Field Music’s last one it’s saved by likeable songwriting and quirky arrangements and a good balance of lolloping, slightly tropical slowies and harder edged fuzz anthems. They’re particularly impressive in the restrained but crunchy chug of ‘Hotline’, with breathy vocals over pulsating a Clinic-esque kraut groove. The songs are very catchy and cumulatively it’s a little sugary for my grizzled tastes but it’s an ambitious and playful power-pop album with lots of character and everyone’s loving that ‘90s sound at the moment, I expect it will be quite popular.
