Nativen Recommends: Natural Child, Okey Dokey

Kat Parker

Nothing says comfort like some nasty 70s-style country-boogie on your turntable. With Okey Dokey, Nashville trio Natural Child scratches a big old rock n roll itch on the back-side of 2016.

 

This record stands confidently in its all its greazy glory with thick buttery organ, deep grooves, wending guitars, and just enough synth to keep it sexy. And like all the best bands carrying the country-rock mantle past the half-century mark, their themes run refreshingly current.  Natural Child revels in calling bullshit on the special ironies of modern American life, from big brother paranoia in “NSA Blues” to the fraught intersection of spirituality and commerce on “transcendental meditation.”  

Okey Dokey is the band’s 6th album but the first on their own label (Natural Child Music) and it shows – they poured some sophisticated funk into their sound with the addition of the organ, tighter vocals, and a willingness to slow down and settle into a layered groove. They are a touring band by design and between their tales of road glory (read: sex, drugs, broken ribs) they’re smart enough to learn along the way and fold nuggets of sonic wisdom back into their music.
