Iguana Death Cult – Nude Casino (album review)

Listening to the Rotterdam quintet’s sophomore album, I was immediately reminded of The Men or Royal Headache. The common thread was this affinity for ramshackle rock ‘n’ roll combined with top-flight musicianship.

This new album seems to have added some post-punk and krautrock flavor to the mix. Following the title track, which btw sounds like something that should be on Bloodshot, Bright Lights steams out of your speakers with an angular guitar riff sounding like Parquet Courts. That is followed by the barnstorning Lorraine. On the back end of the album, Liquify has a guitar riff that feels like it was born in the Caribbean; winds up sounding like something off of Mother’s Milk.

I love these guys. They might be my new favorite band and I am desperate to see them play live.
