5.0 out of 5 stars Sound of Perfection, 18 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Lost In The Dream (Audio CD)
Inspirational piece of songwriting by War On Drugs' Adam Granduciel yet again. Elegantly arranged exploratory and mesmerising songs full of textured layers, atmospheric 80's synths, hazy guitars, pulsating drums beats and vocals echoing in and out like a dream!

If you liked Slave Ambient, your love it! Wagon Wheel Blues is also a great record! If you get a chance to see them live do it!!!!

Offered by Entertainment Direct
Price: £2.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocky and catchy 80's electro pop, 12 May 2006
This review is from: Civilian (Audio CD)
Saw them live on a boat on the Thames for the Carling24 event!

Boy Kill Boy's album Civilian offers outstanding melodies and catchy choruses combined with rocking riffs and 80's electro pop style synths. If you remember the feeling you got when you first heard the Killers then you will love Boy Kill Boy. However Boy Kill Boy can not really be compared with any other band as the sound is unique.

Starting with BACK AGAIN, very fast yet catchy lyrics with excellent riffs. The perfect start to the album. this will lead the way to the next track surely to be a release ON & ON, lots of electro 80 pop going and again catchy. SUZIE is by almost the best song i've heard this year, just the way it kicks in and i guarantee you will be singign this song after one listen. CIVIL SIN was the song that got me into this band and if u listen you will see why... KILLER is really 80's style-ish, superb riffs and repitive chorus, again catchy. On my own is one of my favourite tracks.

Overall this is a really catchy album and this band are excellent live... so from my point of view I'd say ignore the review with the one star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars soothing like a warm bath, 5 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Here to Hear Ep (Audio CD)
The Belles are songwriter and guitarist Chris Tolles and percussionists Jake Cardwell, the duo are from Kansas and are able to create beautiful, mellow and elegant songs. First off this is not a band you should associate with the likes of The Strokes, The Hives or The Vines. They have named their debut album ‘Omerta’ which is Italian and means ‘the code of silence’; the album is due to be released on the 13th March.
This EP ‘(who will be) here to hear’ is a brilliant introduction for the duo; it leaves you begging for more. The EP consists of four songs the title track ‘(who will be) here to hear’ is very soothingly epic and is probably the finest illustration of The Belles' inventiveness and distinctly un-commercial tactic to gain these traditionally written work of arts. An intriguing Jake Cardwell's drumming technique almost stands out the other instruments and rapidly becomes one of the albums most exceptional and charming virtues. The EP also contains ‘These Things Will Kill Me’, ‘Victory Parade’ which is dreamy and out of this world and ‘Left Arm Tan’.
