Jacuzzi Boys Pop Up on Pitchfork
Indie rock taste-makers/breakers Pitchfork Media threw some love to Miami's tropical-death-metal-slash-swamp-rock threesome the Jacuzzi Boys this morning. In a review of their (comparatively) mellow anti-ballad "The Countess", Amy Granzin threw up some fairly gushy praise by Pitchfork standards: "A bass drum drives the song straight and steady, but heavy reverb makes
the beats sound like they're volleying off damp dungeon walls at
unpredictable angles, a sultry and sinister atmosphere enhanced by
ghostly surf guitar lines. Jacuzzi Boys do the grimy, gutter-sniping
psychedelic-garage thing really well."
