Boy Crazy

With a name like Boy Crazy, I would have most likely brushed this band off at first as just another part of the pop-punk bullshit that seems to be appearing everywhere these days. However, after reading that these guys were signed to Emerald Moon Records without a vocalist, I had to see what the deal was. Turns out, Boy Crazy is hardly what the name may suggest. If I were to liken them to any other band, it would be the Sound of Animals Fighting (Tiger and the Duke), but even that doesn't describe their sound accurately. This Towson, Maryland four-piece blends together experimental instrumentals with good ol' rock'n'roll which, although maybe not matching up with the style of TSOAF, is just as innovative and aggressive. Their songs off their debut EP, Whale Songs to Kensington Garden, range from being more rock-oriented ("Egyptian Plover and the Crocodile") to having a more ambient sound ("Cosmo Memory"). I highly recommend getting your hands on the EP. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
