I remember when I first came across Born To Hula a few years ago. The band had a very distinct but familiar sound. They sounded like they were a direct offshoot of Queens of The Stone Age. Fast forward to 3 years later and the band’s 4th release Dirty Tapes. The band has certainly evolved and matured over the years. The writing and even production even seems more polished than before. The band’s sound is still desert rock and plenty of fuzz to go around but it’s also a lot mellower and somewhat laid back. You definitely don’t want to go without giving this a fair shake because it’s a great album. It may take a listen or two to grow on you but once it does, you’re going to really love it.
