Nice as Fuck – Nice as Fuck

ARTIST: Nice as Fuck      200x200bb

TITLE: Nice as Fuck

YEAR RELEASED: 2016

CHART ACTION: None

SINGLES: Door

OTHER SONGS YOU MAY KNOW: Maybe…they were on Colbert.

LINEUP: Jenny Lewis, Erika Forster, Tennessee Thomas

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: Jenny Lewis goes new-wave with a minimalist trio.

SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Formed initially to play at a Bernie Sanders rally, Nice as Fuck allowed Jenny Lewis to get her new-wave on. Grabbing veterans from female bands (Au Revoir Simone and The Like), Lewis collaborates on a brief yet fun-sounding album.

It’s spare and minimal – in a way sounding a bit like ESG in how the bass and drum work together – and Lewis’ voice guides the music.

I don’t know if they’ll continue after 2016 – it was formed for an election year – but if so Lewis can be a decent new waver.

NOTES & MINUTIAE: They appeared on Colbert soon after they formed.

IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No

GRADE: B+:  It’s short but they have a decent sound and it’s a breezy album.
