Music for 11/7/22!!! Nice Motor, Special Interest

@@@ Nice Motor: Superior Street Sessions (Self-released, 2022) I got to this Chicago classic-y via a music publicist in the Midwest. It comes out classic rockin but with more updated lyrics — less leather trousers and more feelings. Gruff singer, buzzy guitars and an energetic drummer these guys bust it out all right. There’s a refreshing plainness to the proceedings they’re just setting it up and knocking it down. No grunge self inflicted misery, no arena rock star action, no emo over the top horseshit. If you’re up for some old school pumped up rock check this out.

@@@ Special Interest: Midnight Legend (Rough Trade, 2022) Off this week’s 10 most reviewed albums from Pitchfork. This an interesting and pretty equal blend of rock sounds and dancefloor banging sound. You get some four on the floor kick drum, a buzzy rock bass, a diva like singer, and some squally guitar sounds. I like the blend and how they party on top of this pot of sounds. Lemme peep a coupla more tracks. I’m checking out the opener, Cherry Blue Intention and it’s punkier and more nihilistic. I liked the track that’s clipped below, it works the party rock blend more successfully. The rest of it seems focused on more abrasive Devo type but with female singers.
