Daytrotter Unveils Natural Child Session, Features Lead Single Off Forthcoming LP

"Well, we're Natural Child. Thanks for checkin' out the Daytripper. I hope everybody out there on the Internet is havin' a nice day."

Daytrotter released Natural Child's live session this morning, which was recorded in Nashville at Daytrotter's Big Light Studio. The beloved Nashville party band's session features "B$G P$MP$N", a track from their highly anticipated forthcoming LP Hard in Heaven, which will be released digitally on September 18 (A vinyl release date is TBA).

Daytrotter founder Sean Moeller had this to say about Natural Child: "The guys in the Nashville band sing, 'I don't love you baby, I just love that ass,' and remind us elsewhere that they 'don't wanna fuck, you, but I got to.' They ooze with the kind of one-track mind that regularly makes rock and roll so damned great. It's that not at all casual pursuit of hitting all of the pleasure centers at once. It's that endless pursuit of the next party, the next girl and the next chance to black out. It's that chasing of tail that leads young men to their guitars, microphones and dive bars. It's what routinely keeps them there, pursuing until they're well past their prime."

Natural Child's third full-length album Hard in Heaven is the second LP the band is releasing this year--their second full-length, For the Love of the Game, was released on April 20, 2012, also on Burger Records.

  "Between conspicuous coughs on their summer party single “B$G P$MP$N”, they reference Weezy (“I can make it rain/ Make it thunder, too”), ridin’ dirty (“Take a ride with me, I’m stoned”), badass bitches, and ice, all while speeding toward an authentic stoop-side interlude to the seemingly incongruous tune of “Roll Over Beethoven” guitar riffs. It’s a bold move, but a hilarious one, and it works almost too well." - Consequence of Sound

Critical Praise for Natural Child

"Somehow, between the dizziness of bong rips, they've done more than just spew out mindless releases. They've managed to elevate their sound from the commonplace amped-up garage of their early singles to a complex level that's more accurately likened to classic rock fused with country and blues." Stomp and Stammer, June 2012

"They’re a lot more fun than the Black Keys or Kings of Leon or the few other bands that supposedly carried the torch for real rock in the past decade, and For the Love of the Game shows Natural Child maturing rapidly upon the classic rock radio moves of their debut 1971, and settling into their own skin a little bit."  Get Bent

"Natural Child led off with their swampy blues-punk, their road-vetted, gritty riffs and doubled vocal melodies a sweaty, stoner-friendly pleasure as always. Wes Traylor probably has my favorite bass tone of any Nashvillian, and Natural Child is basically as much a comedy act as a punk band — what with their face-pulling and intentional cross-talk banter. Truly, one of the best sets I saw all day." - Nashville Scene 

"...the vibe in the room was beer-soaked, exuberant and massively fun."
Village Voice

"From the moment they thump out that infectious, sledgehammer beat, Natural Child had me in their sludgy yet vigorous, stoner-punk clutches...these southern ruffians have been thoroughly steeped in ’60s garage rock and psychedelia, and from it distilled their own gnarlier, countrified rock and roll." - My Old Kentucky Blog

"We were in Atlanta the other night, and there was some record shop open, and it was blaring some music out. We couldn't tell whether it was Natural Child or the Stones, and that made me really happy." - Ben Swank, co-founder of Third Man Records
