Okey Dokey (9/16) is the latest full-length from Nashville, TN’s Natural Child. The band’s first new music in two years is also the debut release on their new label, Natural Child Records and Tapes. Natural Child started recording the album in Memphis and completed it in Chicago, where they worked alongside Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas).
Let’s get a few things about Natural Child out of the way: they’re not retro, not the bastard sons of Lynyrd Skynyrd or ZZ Top, not barnstormers or foot stompers or country-fried bumpkins sharing their latest “stew.” To some they are saviors, to others they’re the soundtrack to countless substance- fueled nights. To themselves, they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band, chugging along, in every sense of the word.
With Okey Dokey, Natural Child says come on in – give us your tired, your weak, your poor; give us your rockers and rollers and grimy punks and suburban cowboys. Get down how you wanna get down.
“Okey Dokey is a stellar record that’ll make ya wanna sway, scream, serenade and stumble.” – Aquarium Drunkard
