“…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.”
