Jacuzzi Boys - Glazin'

Album Reviews

September 2011


Cover Art: Jacuzzi Boys, 'Glazin'

If these goofy Miami garage punks ever come to your town, be there with beer money. After a 2009 album, assorted seven-inch singles, and a recent live recording for Jack White's Third Man imprint, Jacuzzi Boys have taken their place among the best sloppy racket-makers bashing out easy-boogie soundtracks to your next drunken night at the local rock dive. Led by singing guitarist Gabriel Alcala, the trio does little on its second album to reward closer, repeated listens. But between chugging good-climes opener "Vizcaya," scrappily Led-en stomper "Zeppelin," and spaced-out acoustic closer "Koo Koo With You," you won't be disappointed.
