It’s a cliché to put it like this, but fuck it: Imagine Thurston Moore and Josh Homme had a child (yes, it’s scientifically possible). When that child is angry it sounds exactly like Nice Hooves. As far as I understand it, they’re a side project of The Armed (a band that I ought to check out, but haven’t gotten around to yet).
Their selftitled LP from 2013 isn’t bad, but it’s not as good as “The Gall” from 2015. I can’t find the lyrics anywhere online and he does sing something like “Honestly a man is a man” on the first song, but I can’t exactly discern the rest of it – better not be some misogynistic bullshit. I hope not, because here I am, writing a blog post recommending their stuff. For now they’re getting the benefit of the doubt – I should probably buy the record and check if there’s a lyric sheet or something.

“Weddings and Funerals” was the song that got me interested at first so you might want to start there.
