RIYL: Parquet Courts, Husker Du, Sonic Youth
Label: Captured Tracks
As is customary with every new signee¬†on Captured Tracks, there is an immediacy in B Boys’ lofi urgency. ¬†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 perfectly¬†into the mix like the brash¬†UK hardcore sound¬†from the early 80s. ¬†This ain’t a hardcore band, though. ¬†The vocal aggression¬†reminds me of Parquet Courts’ breakout track¬†Stoned and Starving or The Clash’s I’m So Bored With The USA, a conversational not-quite-singing, not-quite-spoken word¬†style.
They join Perfect Pussy, Naomi Punk, The Soft Moon and the rest of the fringe punk scene that Captured Tracks¬†has accumulated over the last half decade. ¬†300 cream-colored wax slabs await you after the ‘buy’ link, and they’ll also come with a 12-page booklet. ¬†Will it have pretty pictures? ¬†Scribbled lyrics? ¬†Both? ¬†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).
