The Debut LP from The NbC’s AKA Natural Born Chillers kicks off with an awesome, psychedelic garage-rock tune “Aunty Meredith”, there’s wah-wah on a big guitar riff, lyrics about a local festival, and those are some pretty good ingredients for an opener. It kind of sets up what’s to come, the album’s full of deep grooving guitar, the wah-wah makes the occasional appearance, but you can change the psych for blues (or roots). There are a few songs in the John Butler vein, “Chivalry Ain’t Dead” is one, it sits in a sweet groove, with a really cool slide riff, but I couldn’t help make the comparison. “So Much Soul” was another standout; it takes the album down with some chill slide work and vocals, and builds it back up. This a live album recorded in Melbourne, so the recording of the vocals can get a bit dodgy, but it does have a really good feel to it being live. Catch The NbC’s at a gig when they come to the peninsula in December and January.
