Product Description

the Boy Disaster Tacks - Oh, Beatrice

BBC Review

In a recent interview lead singer and band creator Evan Jacobs mentioned that the band's name comes from a character they found tucked away in a book hidden within an antique shop. Odd perhaps, but apt, definitely. One listen to The Boy Disaster and a land of fairy tales and make believe is not that hard to imagine.

Hailing form the Texan heartland, Tack are a four-piece carving their own indie-tastic landscape adding to the riches already emerging from that part of the world. As the founder of pop-darlings Midlake and a cog in the wheel of the Polyphonic Spree, lead singer Jacobs is becoming something of a musical talisman.

However, the album isn't an immediate hit and it takes time for an impression to develop. "Paris" meanders and develops with a mixture of high-pitched piano and fluctuating bass but doesn't do much else. Similarly "Frozen Feet" doesn't seem to fluctuate from this one level but there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Tacks are not out to impress 'suits with money' but regular folk propped up against a bar appreciating personal, brutally honest compositions.

"Matilda" is void of complication and it's elegance lies in a solitary guitar accompanied by almost whispered lyrics and subtle piano. In "Man With A Plan" Jacobs croons, 'I seem fine to the naked eye but there's still a lot on my mind', which suggests the inspiration behind the record adds further emotional depth to proceedings. Overall, then, Oh Beatrice is well thought out and introspective: perfect for a quiet night in at the library. --David McGuire

Format: Audio CD
Heard them support Cherry Ghost last night at the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham and was taken by how their unique sound came across. Sometimes frenetic, other times quite reserved, they range quite widely but they certainly have quality musical talent at their disposal.

Similarities with bands such as Polyphonic Spree, Midlife and Wilco spring to mind, but these guys certainly haven't followed any of these bands too closely and have taken the best qualities from each to fuse a very experimental, but really pleasant sound.

Frozen Feet gets the album off to an upbeat start, with Paris painting a very laid back picture with soft mellow sounds. Forget Me Not picks up the album's pace again and is the best track on here, but fends off some really tough opposition from the other tracks.

This seven-track album is a great starter, and it'll be really interesting to hear future material from this band.

What a fantasic album and a real discovery for me when I came across it a few years back. Whatever happened to them...?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic First Album 28 July 2011
By A. O'Mara - Published on Amazon.com
I don't remember when or how I found about these guys, but I eagerly anticipate hearing more. Frozen Feet is by far the best track. It is haunting and it burns itself into your brain.
