So I’m 3 years late on this guy but Australia’s Muscles is well worth getting acquainted with. He first caught my eye with the amazing and intense video for his new single “Girl Crazy Go”, causing me to immediately buy his 2007 debut LP Guns, Babes, Lemonade. Let me focus on that album for a bit because there is a lot of awesomeness going on that needs to be addressed. Right from that album art and title combo we know this guy has come to party and album opener “Sweaty” is living proof. The main complaint against Muscles is his semi-grating voice (a bastard talk-sing mix of Calvin Harris and James Murphy) but it quickly grew on me and only adds to his appeal as the guy next door who just wants to throw mad parties and get crazy with his friends. Every track on the album is packed with huge hooks, immediately catchy sing-along lyrics, and tons of “WHoooo”s and “YEaaahhh!”s that are perfect for one handed fist pumping between gulps of beer. “Sweaty” was my immediate favorite but that’s probably just cause it’s first on the disc. Choosing a second jam to share with you all wan’t easy because each time I listen to the album I fall in live with a different track.
“Lauren From Glebe” is today’s favorite so I’m going with it. It’s a perfect combination of all of Muscles passions: partying, friends, dancing, and romance. Oh, and yelling “woooo” a lot. My kind of guy. I already love this album and it’s still getting better with each listen so treat your weekend right and add it to the festivities. Also check out one more track with the video for another album favorite “The Lake” below.
