The Good Natured - Skeleton
There are quite a few things about this EP that I like. Each song has it's own personality and they are all a bit different from each other. There is an overarching theme through the entire record so it's not disjointed and you have a good sense of who The Good Natured are by the end of the 6 tracks and a remix. Skeleton, the single, not the album title, was an amazing choice by the band. It's more mainstream and has more mass appeal than songs like Hourglass or Be My Animal. It's an earworm of a song and the chorus will get stuck in your head without trying. Sarah's vocals are another thing I really like. Most British accents fade away but not hers. It is loud and proud and gives the album more depth. It's one of those things where people say even a British accent can class the joint up and it does. I dig this album and know it's going to stay in heavy rotation in my library for quite some time. Do yourself a favor and pick it up because it's super fun and it'll have you digging out your Concrete Blonde and Bauhaus albums before you know it.
