Album Review

Married couple Marsh and Daphne Nabors have been making music together for decades, first in the Comas in the early '90s, and then as the Overnight Lows. At nearly 15 years in the making, City of Rotten Eyes is actually their first official album together under the latter moniker. Joined by Paul Artigues of New Orleans' Die Rötzz on drums, the Nabors (who also put in work with Memphis' Lover!) play with the confident abandon of punk lifers. Though not exactly tight, they have the strength of a battle-seasoned outfit, while maintaining the snotty energy of newbies.

Indeed, the Overnight Lows aren't exactly reinventing the wheel; in fact sometimes they trip right over it, ending up a little bruised but no worse for wear. It's precisely that dogged energy, however, that pushes this record up and over the occasionally low bar set for such acts.


Genre: Alternative

Years Active:

The Overnight Lows' official debut full-length was released in 2010; however, the gritty Jackson, MS-based combo had, in fact, been a presence in the punk scene of the South for nearly a decade-and-a-half prior. The core unit of husband-and-wife duo Marsh and Daphne Nabors took on the name the Overnight Lows in 1995 (the pair also spent time in the Comas as well as in power pop punks Lover!). The band plays trashy, scrappy punk that traverses the more knuckled-headed environs of the punk universe,...
