Boomkat Product Review:
Although they're not one of Domino's highest profile bands, Archie Bronson Outfit are by now as much a part of the label's furniture as any of their more recognisable labelmates. Coconut is the band's third album, and marks another creative left turn. DFA co-founder Tim Goldsworthy is recruited as producer, and the impact of his contribution can be felt strongly across the record - particularly in terms of its presentation. While the bar-room blues driving force at the heart of this trio's work remains the defining factor, there's undoubtedly a newfound polish - and when necessary - rigidity that reconfigures ABO as a more rhythmic, even danceable enterprise. Preview single 'Shark's Tooth' paved the way for the likes of 'Bite It & Believe It' or 'Hoola', while better still is 'Chunk', boasting Tom Tom Club-like new wave takes on disco. There's also a more experimental side running through the album, as perhaps best illustrated by motorik chugger 'Wild Strawberries' or brooding fuzz-rock opus 'Magnetic Warrior'. Pop finds its way into the formula too, and for all the renewed emphasis on the band's rhythm section, they still manage to sound like a great all-round garage rock combo right the way across the record; it's as if Archie Bronson Outfit have been reinvented and modernised for the Woodsist generation on album closer 'Run Gospel Singer', which plays Coconut out with a varnish of distortion and psychedelic Beach Boys-isms.
