RIYL: Parquet Courts, Husker Du, Sonic Youth
Label: Captured Tracks
As is customary with every new signeeÂ on Captured Tracks, there is an immediacy in B Boys’ lofi urgency. Â The fervent guitar tones off first single Get A Grip bleed out of the speakers in a style reminiscent of early Husker Du while the heavy-handed backbeat melts perfectlyÂ into the mix like the brashÂ UK hardcore soundÂ from the early 80s. Â This ain’t a hardcore band, though. Â The vocal aggressionÂ reminds me of Parquet Courts’ breakout trackÂ Stoned and Starving or The Clash’s I’m So Bored With The USA, a conversational not-quite-singing, not-quite-spoken wordÂ style.
They join Perfect Pussy, Naomi Punk, The Soft Moon and the rest of the fringe punk scene that Captured TracksÂ has accumulated over the last half decade. Â 300 cream-colored wax slabs await you after the ‘buy’ link, and they’ll also come with a 12-page booklet. Â Will it have pretty pictures? Â Scribbled lyrics? Â Both? Â I suppose you’ll just have to buy it to find out.
This item is a pre-order. It will ship on or before it's March 18th release date.
The Special Edition version of the LP is limited to 300 copies, pressed on Cream Colored Vinyl and includes a 12-page 8" x 8" Booklet (as will all copies of the first pressing).
