I woke up to some new favorite music thanks to a message from Shane in the chat box. He suggested the single "Shine Your Light" by The Nude Party because he heard a World Party influence. I listened and I heard it, too. Delving a bit deeper, I found a profile of The Nude Party from Boone, North Carolina, which says this:
"Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock and roll act to be reckoned with. Their stripped down and bare bone sound, akin to the British Invasion being transplanted back into the Carolina mountains, has so far proven to have been unrecordable… until now. The secret? Sticking to the obvious and going down into a sweaty basement with a few mics, fewer clothes and a revolving door of comrades and goddesses falling by for as long as they can take the heat."
Believe it or not, this is exactly what their most recent record sounds like and that's a good thing.
Check out these three tracks from their 2020 release "Midnight Manor."
And thanks Shane. The Nude Party has a new fan.
