The International Playboys
Sexiful
Motron
Missoula’s best-dressed and loudest, the International Playboys, have spilled their seed again for a record that’s twice as frantic and in your face as the last one. Sexiful, the band’s second full-length release, is out of hand and fat-riffed, like a methed-out Black Oak Arkansas or ZZ Top on some infamous lost weekend. As these Austin, Texas, sessions prove, the screws get tighter with every tour and the Playboys finally have a steady drummer to boot—one who can box like Ali. Pure cheap-beer bump-and-grind metal with a bit of Albert King/Jim Page squall backing up that sweaty Rob Tyner howl. There are too many bests here to list them all, but here are a few: For best song title, “The International Playboys Get a Bottle of Wine, Go to the Beach and Get Fucked Up” (Really, guys? One bottle?). Best emulation of a classic album cover, for Van Halen’s Women & Children First. Classiest choice of cover tune, for Gladys Knight’s “If I Was Your Woman.” And, of course, for the Playboys’ best release so far. Most Sexiful. (Bryan Ramirez)
