BEST BOY ELECTRIC, "SONGS OF LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE"

E-mail Print PDF
Sometimes it gets quite difficult to describe something without using comparisons to others before them. While I really enjoy this, the charming and honest debut full-lengther from Best Boy Electric, the slow and melodic music combined with the hesitant vocals screams of influence of Galaxie 500, Bedhead and of course, Low.

While I really enjoy this, the charming and honest debut full-lengther from Best Boy Electric, the slow and melodic music combined with the hesitant vocals screams of influence of Galaxie 500, Bedhead and of course, Low. Best Boy is based in Madison, WI and features former Low bass guitarist John Nichols, who left the band to head to college. The album was produced in Duluth by Alan Sparhawk from Low and features a similar formula of simple drums, slow pace, melodic guitar lines, heart-felt bass strums and quiet keybaord background accompaniment. The lack of pop ditties and up-and-down stroked guitars doesen't necessarily warrant calling this "sad" music, so I'm confused where people get off on accusing bands like this of being as such. This should be an interesting band to watch develop over the next few years, as the singer sounds like he's just beginning to get comfortable with his voice. Those fans of the above mentioned bands would probably enjoy this as much as I did while if slow-core or shadow-pop isn't your style, it's most likely not for you. - Jon Whitney
