The Strange Boys

In short order, Austin's Strange Boys deliver another record and another RSTB fave. Be Brave skews a bit calmer than its predecessor but it retains the swagger that that seems to curl at the edges of all Strange Boys recordings; and even if boys have picked up a few acoustic guitars along the way they still play them with all the twang and sneer of Jagger/Richards house party. The new leanings seem to be echoed even in the album's cover art, lackadaisical summer strums obscured by the haze of an afternoon sun. And while February might feel like a weird time for such a sunny record to hit shelves, perhaps this will steam some life back into those bitter days or at least inspire a slow smile of days passed. Honestly, we couldn't be happier to sink into these sun stroked melodies.

I'm with you, these guys are amazing. their catchy melodies and dirty sound manages to bring to mind the old heroes, but still keeps the refreshing feeling there.

Got this record on pre-order. 'Night Might' is an excellent song, but they performed a demo of the song in a SXSW session (available here: http://www.daytrotter.com/dt/the-strange-boys-sxsw-session-concert/20030662-3737987.html), which had a fantastic second guitar part that accented the melody perfectly. Unfortunately they decided not to use it for the final recording of the song, as it gave the song an added groove.
