Best New Bands of 2012 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD #9: NUDE BEACH

There was a time in my life where it revolved around my jean jacket, my shaggy hair, my need to date any girl that looked like she was wearing ripped up jeans and a loose fitting shirt and quite possibly a mutual desired love for The Jam. It’s good to know that that phase has passed, but the sonic soulmates of that ERA keep cropping back up. Most of which absolutely suck, really they do. Only one or two will last longer than their actual predecessors, not to say that the early pop rock Gods were any good either. They had their time and it passed, but with our generation of Millenials who believe that nothing existed before 2000, here is something to remember. Every band has a Sonic Soulmate. Even your beloved Radiohead. Nude Beach is quite good and deserves to be on this year’s list. They skate the Costello riffs and The Jams rip and tear to produce a high quality record. We look forward to their follow-up LP and some tour dates.

Vitals:
Home: Brooklyn, NY
Members: MChuck Betz, Ryan Naideau, and Jimmy Shelton
Sonic Soulmates™: 1983 guitar pop bands see Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, The Jam, The Alarm
Trackables™: Notable tracks from his release II, but listen to the whole damn thing
“Walkin’ Down My Street”
“Radio” – Tom Petty
“Some Kinda Love”
