Nature Is Nurture
Big, Buff, and Handsome (Sounds Like a Good Time)
I Won't Last Forever
Woke Up Drunk
It's been a minute since Nashville favorites Creature Comfort released their 2013 debut album Fox Tales, but their sophomore effort Home Team proves to be worth the wait. The twangy, sometimes psychedelic pop-rock outfit is led by vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter Jessey Clark, whose versatile voice can channel Weezer's Rivers Cuomo and Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold within a single song. "Woke Up Drunk" is a pristine breakup ballad, with Clark delivering an intimate story of the end of a relationship with impressive emotional range. The hilariously titled "Big, Buff, and Handsome (Sounds Like a Good Time)" shows off the band's rowdier side, with handclaps, rhythmic banjo, and propulsive bass laying the foundation for a deceptively complex meditation on human fallibility.
