Editorial Reviews

Jacuzzi Boys hail from Miami and play fuzzy, metallic, power pop anthems. Glazin' is the group's second full length and first for Hardly Art. The album was recorded at Key Club Studio (Franz Ferdinand, the Kills, etc) and finds the JBs reaching a more refined and polished sound, complete with studio tricks and wizardry. The result is a sonic popsicle! Delicious and refreshing and a treat for your ears. Prepare to experience raspberry feelings all over.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the name fool you August 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Jacuzzi Boys displays a carefree rock 'n' roll sensibility and stripped-down sound that could easily have earned it a regular gig at legendary Manhattan rock club CBGB in its heyday, alongside other proto-punk bands Neon Boys and The Dictators. The bare-bones fuzz and stomp permeating "Glazin'" even seems to convey the hardscrabble lifestyle of the mid-1970s in the Bowery neighborhood, then dubbed NYC's "Skid Row." But this three-piece hails from Miami.

The fact that the lyrics ("Sugar in my hair / melting everywhere, in the sunshine ... glazin' for you" on the title track) are mostly about cruising for girls under radiant skies with toes in the sand betrays the illusion. Plus the ridiculous name, something the band has said was a joke that stuck.

Jacuzzi Boys shows it still has a lot of room to grow on its second release, which toward the end meanders into psychedelia to excruciating effect on "Silver Sphere (Death Dream)." Other times, the bands seems to run short on ideas, as on "Zeppelin," which apes The Donnas (who, in turn, milked Kiss' glam-metal sound).

However, "Glazin'" is infused with enough catchy rockers to hold it all together, and its 10 songs clock in at just over 30 minutes. The standout tracks are "Cool Vapors" -- with singer/guitarist Gabriel Alcala repeating "me, oh, oh" and laying down an infectious groove reminiscent of early Buzzcocks -- and "Crush," with its Phil Spector vibe.

Jacuzzi Boys may not be carving out any new turf, but they've staked out a hearty patch of land and pitched a big-top tent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! March 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've the seen the Jacuzzi Boys a couple of times in Southern California and they do not disappoint! If you get a chance to check em out, I highly recommend it. This cd is awesome. Kinda has a surf, garage pop sensibility. Very melodic. I play it during my daily run and driving around socal. Pick it up, you won't regret it.
