Single Review:Jacuzzi Boys-Bricks or Coconuts

If anyone remembers, a few months ago I was blabbering on about a new, insanely catchy Jacuzzi Boys song. I also mentioned how that song would be appearing soon on a brand new single on Mexican Summer. Well now that single has arrived, and it is a perfect wax slab of jangly guitar, garage/power-pop perfection.

"Bricks or Coconuts" is still the same incredible song that it was when it debuted a short time ago. The way Gabriel's guitar and weird, off-kilter voice synch up is unreal. It is the definition of what an A-side should be. The B-sides are quirkier and equally as great, letting the band showcase their punkier roots. "Freakazoids" matches its name exactly, built on a feedback riff, it's a mess of a song that works in a way that shouldn't. "Sing Along" has nice British style post-punk feel to it that's quite neat, especially the way the Jacuzzi Boys filter it.

If there was ever a starting point to check out a band, this single might be it. These songs will float through your skull for days, and you will love every second of it.

On a small side note, the venerable Burger Records has just put out the Jacuzzi Boys' debut LP No Seasons out on cassette recently with a bonus song to boot. For those who have want to check it out (which should be everybody), check it out here.
