Bountiful Hearts

Thoughts Words Action

What a great way to start the week! Thank you Thoughts Words Action for this fantastic review of the Keep It Wild EP. Read an excerpt of the review below and don’t forget to watch the video here.

“…it’s a perfect release to start the working week with, mainly because each composition is a pure rager from beginning to end. Perhaps it possesses only four songs, but that’s enough to get the idea about Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & The Bountiful Hearts. I wasn’t familiar with the band before, but I have to admit Keep It Wild easily became part of my daily playlist. There’s something about this material that keeps me spinning it almost repetitiously.

Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & The Bountiful Hearts also incorporate a healthy dosage of power pop, classic pop, indie pop, and psychedelic music. Maybe the introductory piece, Keep It Wild, commences with abrasive guitars and fast beats, but the band immediately slows down the pace on the second composition, which bursts with pop sensibilities from scratch to finish. Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & The Bountiful Hearts keep their sound as versatile as possible, so you will love both songs no matter which genre you prefer.

The band returns to rock’n’roll waters in the third composition. It is probably the shortest of the four presented numbers. Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & The Bountiful Hearts demonstrate how rock’n’roll tunes can sound catchy, anthemic, and entertainful, even if they’re under two minutes. It’s a perfect track for those listeners who don’t like wasting time on longevous intros, solos, or any other unnecessary things that sometimes spoil the listening experience. Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & The Bountiful Hearts sang the fourth composition in Spanish, and it’s a perfect outro solely performed on acoustic guitar.”

Keep It Wild Video

Happy Friday the 13th! The Keep It Wild EP is now available on all streaming services via RIP Ben Lee Records. It was directed by Ray Mann in Berlin last summer and I absolutely love it. Take a look.

Special thanks to everyone who made this EP possible, first and foremost David Newton, Joel Isaac Black, Jessica Espeleta and David Alexander. Without these fine musicians I’d be pissing in the wind.

Viktoria Cichon did an incredible job with the artwork and Bernd Diekjobst made sure to capture my good side for the press photos. Thank you.

Bite it Promotion are crushing the PR side, State 51 have done a fantastic job with distribution and I‘ve even managed a few sales via Bandcamp, so thanks to them too.

Of course, I can’t do anything without the love and support of my wife Ali Bell who has seen releases come and go like sunsets and still loves me whether they are successful or not – I appreciate that.

I’ll have more news for you next week, but please enjoy the EP and video, and leave feedback in the comments. Have a great weekend.
