Boomkat Product Review:
It's sometimes nice to get a no bullsh*t, balls out rock 'n roll record that seems to have passed by the trappings of the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s but I must say it's very rare it happens. The Makes Nice are the brainchild of virtuoso guitarist Josh Smith who is probably best known for tickling strings in The F*cking Champs; his plan was simple, to put together an R&B band like R&B bands used to be - no holds bars rhythm and blues music! Of course once the lineup was complete with Jack Matthew and Aaron Burnham the band decided to take a decidedly different direction, but their intentions were just as pure. The resulting record (after months of heady sessions) sounds like the bastard child of classic pop music and classic rhythm 'n blues, stopping for gas at the rock 'n roll service station in the stars. Thirteen songs that don't even go over the three minute mark - it's how albums used to be, there's no concept, no grand masterplan, rather these guys just wanna make hooks and get you on the dancefloor shaking your ass. And it works, which is a real shock - the songs are full of life, humour and real ability, The Makes Nice can write songs, and that's the really important thing. Like The Beach Boys on helium or the Small Faces if they'd heard Tortoise, there's something of the wild abandon about the band but each song sounds like you might hear it on the radio in Back to the Future. Pop music might be in a bit of a rut at the moment, but it's good to hear a band that aren't afraid to genuinely go back to the good old days. A riotously enjoyable listening experience - boogie the night away!
