Nurses enter the Circle of Trust

So to be honest with you, when I first came across the band Nurses, and realized they were all men, I instantly thought of Ben Stiller's character Gaylord Focker in Meet the Parents.

Hangin' Nothin' But Our Hands Down is the debut album from San Diego'ites Nurses, although it's well polished enough to make you think otherwise. One of its charms is its seemingly random instrumentation that pops up and then cuts out, leaving you to wonder what's going to come into the song next, and another is that the lead singer's voice (Aaron, I think) reminds me quite often of Tim Curry in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Put the two together and you get songs that make you feel like you're having wildly changing mood swings. After reading this you might be thinking that it sounds like a jumbled mass of musical pieces tossed together haphazardly, but somehow they manage to pull it off. Listen for yourself:

Nurses - And Now The Curse Of Marjorie : Hangin' Nothin' But Our Hands Down

Nurses - Wait For A Safe Sign : Hangin' Nothin' But Our Hands Down

Visit their website, their label Sargent House, and become their friend on MySpace.

Check out an interview the band did with MTV.

Sounds intriguing. But unfortunately you've run out of bandwidth.
