The kids of Boxing will take you on a sonic journey you will not forget. This quartet from Los Angeles prides themselves on weaving disjunctive threads of noise and harmony into a beautiful tapestry of chaos and mind-numbing emotional control. With the tongues of the indie scene currently lapping at the feet of the electro-clash revival movement, it is a nice surprise to discover bands like Boxing. Their music is an environment for A.D.D. kids to make out to- a world that bands such as Deerhoof, Smog, Jad Fair, and Guided By Voices certainly inhabit as well. There are slow ballads such as State's Old Banner that collide seamlessly into spiraling anthems such as A Very Good Day for Poor People, which stumble into twangy pieces such as Horse Dreamer. This is not glossy music, nor is it harmonically obtuse or structurally vague. What Boxing does is portray a world of surreal beauty where we all would want to live, if even just for a second.
