The band's profile enjoyed a healthy boost following some favorable media coverage (the band's 2009 split 7" with Woven Bones
was featured on Pitchfork) and an endorsement from none other than Iggy Pop
, who dropped the band's name in an interview with Urban Outfitters, and it wasn't long before they found themselves on the roster of Sub Pop
offshoot Hardly Art. Jacuzzi Boys' sophomore album, Glazin', was released in August of 2011. After spending a bunch of time touring and getting a song in the Seth Rogan movie 50/50, the Boys headed to the Key Club Recording Co. to lay down their third album. The results were mastered by legendary sound wizard Kramer
and released to the public as Jacuzzi Boys via Hardly Art in the early autumn of 2013.
After taking a bit of a break, the trio hit the studio in Miami with Torche
's Jonathan Nunez in the producer's chair. The resulting batch of back-to-basics garage rockers arrived on the six-song EP Happy Damage, which the band decided to release on its newly formed Mag Mag
label in September of 2015. Their next album, the '90s indie rock and grunge-leaning Ping Pong, was recorded in Los Angeles and similarly self-released in late 2016. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi
