Kansas City based Shy Boys have long been a favorite among most, if not all of the staff here at ATH. The guys have been quiet for a couple of years now, and with the way things go with bands nowadays, it’s nice to hear that they are coming back with new music. As a taste of new material, the band has offered up this playful and quirky new track called “Take the Doggie With Me”. As you might have guessed, it’s about a dog the band members knew who they felt wasn’t getting much love and they want to take the pup with them. We’re all dog lovers here, so of course we love the track, but let’s not ignore the very well executed music. As always, the band is incredibly tight with perfectly timed guitars and an on point chorus. Well done.
Shy Boys will release new album Bell House on August 3rd via Polyvinyl Records.
Hey and the band will also be playing at Hotel Vegas on Thursday night with our friends The Sour Notes!
As you can possibly tell from my lack of posts recently, I haven’t been finding much new music I’m into recently as I delve deeper into back catalogs. Sometimes though a band like Kansas City based The Conquerors comes along and offers me just enough of a throwback sound to draw me in and believe in the new music scene again. It’s as if a garage, psych band from the modern era (which is played out as hell if you ask me) blended with a 60s band like Paul Revere & The Raiders. Thanks for restoring my faith in creativity.
New album Wyld Time is due out August 26th via High Dive Records.
Back in November I shared some new tuneage with you from Kansas City band Shy Boys. Today sees the band inching ever closer to their release date and they are celebrating with us by dropping this new single “Bully Fight” on our ears. Yet again, the band sound as though they must be from a different part of the world and not the Mid Western U.S. To me they sound like they could be transplanted directly from some remote corner of the UK playing beautiful twee pop such as this.
Pick up the new self-titled album on January 21st via High Dive Records.
