Four years have gone by since Nikki, Jessi and Kelley Darlin spat their palms and slapped hands in a three way promise that would become Those Darlins. Since them, they ve broken hearts and broken bones, while honing their chops and gaining a lifetime of experience through endless touring: bros to the bitter end. Screws Get Loose is their second album, but the first to show off drummer Linwood Regensburg s abilities as a songwriter. Each song bears the scars of the highs and lows they ve soldiered through together on the road, accentuating the realities of growing up in a rock and roll band.
The band re-enlisted producer Jeff Curtin and headed to Atlanta, GA to record Screws Get Loose with engineer Ed Rawls at his Living Room Studio. While the bands country punk nature is still evident, the Southern roots that shine through are more in line with the dirty South garage rock blasting out of Memphis, Atlanta and Nashville in recent years. Haunting and hook laden numbers such as Hives, Tina Said, and BUMD tussle with the confessional weight of their songs, like Waste Away and Let U Down. Stylistically, the band has created a range of sounds: Boy is reminiscent of Spector s Summery girl pop, Mystic Mind is a fully realized stoner jam, and $ is a lesson on the slippery nature of money, sung in an infestation of vocals.
These songs show that life on the road is no place for the faint of heart. So, naturally, songs take shape with bold narratives, strong voices, and full bodied performances that are no less vibrant than pervious offerings, but are a little less naïve. Maturity and experience combine to open up wholly new dimensions for Those Darlins. But that doesn t mean they have forsaken the spirit of fun and frivolity that has come to define them.

It's got one or two skipable tracks, but as someone who's never fancied himself a particular fan of this (sub)genre, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the tracks. There's a definite eclecticism to the sounds between songs, but not jarringly so. The fuzzed out guitars and rockabilly beats are a through-line for this fun, catchy and unique album. In a musical landscape fraught w/ autotuned, disposable singles, Those Darlins have made a unique and undeniably awesome album with "Screws Get Loose."
