[TENNESSEE THROWBACK] Natural Child doesn’t mind letting its roots show. After all, this is a band that titled its debut album 1971. Recently upgraded to a five-piece with the addition of Luke Schneider on pedal steel and Benny Divine on keys, the band still sounds like a bunch of rowdy rock’n’rollers on its latest release, Dancin’ With Wolves. At the record’s heart is a brand of rock that’s equal parts Neil Young and Nashville, but there’s also a smattering of Allman Brothers jams, and even a couple of loud, brash numbers that give off unmistakable “punk” vibes. Natural Child treads old ground, but it does so with swagger.
