Cool Original - I Never Said I Didn't Care

(PZL168: 708527190692)

Release date: 1/10/2020

Originally from Portland, but now living in Philly, Cool Original (once called "Cool American" until the Doritos lawyers came a-knockin'...) is the project of one Nathan Tucker, with some particularly helpful friends, including members of Alien Boy and Loose, among others. This album was originally released on the Good Cheer label (also of Portland), but received only a small cassette pressing, prompting me to step in and rescue it from physical obscurity. And boy am I glad I did, as it's a stellar album, full of the immaculately jangly indie rock that I love so dearly, as made by the likes of Joy Cleaner, Dogbreth, Diners and so many others these days. Heck, even if you just listen to the lead track, "Never Stop Hanging Out", on repeat a dozen times in a row, you'd be golden, but then you'd be missing out on the other hits they've given us! I may have moved to town too late to catch Cool Original in all their glory, but this record will keep me satisfied until Nathan comes back home for another reunion!
