Given their unabashedly lo-fi aesthetic, their predilection for psychedelia, and their old-school pop sensibilities, the Jacuzzi Boys sound like direct descendants of 1960s garage rock. Although they might sound like they could've appeared on the original Nuggets compilation, the Jacuzzi Boys are most definitely a product of the 21st century; Gabriel Alcala (guitar) and Diego Monasteri (drums) teamed up to form the Jacuzzi Boys in Miami, Florida in 2007. Bassist Danny Gonzales was brought on board soon after to round out the group's sound, and the newly formed trio quickly attracted the attention of the Orlando, Florida-based indie label Florida's Dying (at the time home to a number of like-minded acts, including Personal and the Pizzas and Dead Luke). The Jacuzzi Boys' debut full-length on that label, No Seasons, was released in 2009. The band's profile enjoyed a healthy boost following some favorable media coverage (the band's 2009 split 7" with Woven Bones was featured on Pitchfork) and an endorsement from none other than Iggy Pop, who dropped the band's name in an interview with Urban Outfitters, and it wasn't long before they found themselves on the roster of Hardly Art. The Jacuzzi Boys' sophomore album, Glazin', was released in August of 2011. ~ Margaret RegesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
