Thigh Master - Now For Example
We aren't like those other blogs that only care about music. We are dedicated to the whole you to ensure that you are still around to read us for decades to come. With that introduction, we would like to announce that today is leg day. Well, specifically thigh day, as we are celebrating the band named after that thigh-toning device advertised on cable TV. If you have one, you can exercise while listening to Now For Example, the just-released album by Thigh Master. Mining a groovy vein of jangling, fuzzy slacker garage pop that sounds to us like the band's own twist on lo fi New Zealand guitar pop of the '80s and '90s, the twelve tracks on the album are full of hooks, clang and rhythm. The performances are tight and the songs well constructed, but the album never looses its spontaneous sing-along vibe. At the end of the day, that may be Thigh Master's secret exercise trick.
Now For Example is out now via US label Goner Records, and the band is in the midst of a US tour.
