Album review of Get Awkward by Be Your Own Pet
Make no mistake, the Nashville based quartet Be Your Own Pet's 2nd long player Get Awkward is a 'big' sounding record - fifteen songs with hardly a pause for breath.
With lyrics that adhere to sex, drugs and parties, raging distorted guitar, frenetic drums and the sleazy Americana teen-like vocals from Jemina Pearl, Get Awkward is a rampant nu-punk rock adventure with bundles of attitude and energy.
Get Awkward's likely appeal to a teen audience shouldn't be dismissed as just that, because unlike the majority of nu-punk outfits they make music that is fresh, vigorous, gritty and most importantly, completely believable.
Not one for the faint-hearted, Be Your Own Pet's latest effort is a relentlessly enjoyable ride. Highly recommended.
