Jacuzzi Boys Glazin'

Jacuzzi Boys Glazin'
Miami's public face remains its glistening beaches and glitzy hotels. But like all urban centres, there's always a seedy underbelly. Jacuzzi Boys rep for the latter half of Miami, filling the role of the motel by the interstate that hasn't had a reno since 1973. Grafting a bit of mid-'70s boogie rock to a '60s garage foundation, the band hit all the right notes on standouts "Libras and Zebras" and the title track. But while they do manage to throw in a bit of sonic experimentation, Jacuzzi Boys are ultimately toiling in a busy field and fail to bring much new to the table. You could argue that that's hardly their M.O., but their tunes fail to stick. Though the will is there, ultimately Glazin' is just like that motel: serviceable, but hardly memorable. (Hardly Art)
