“Fast-paced punk and psychedelia culminate together to create what we call ‘Chives.’ Face-melting yet danceable tunes that bring any crowd to the soles of their shoes” -Maxwell Denari
“After four years of 7-inch vinyl and cassette releases, the arrival of the first full-length Chives LP is a major event for dedicated fans and an exciting introduction for new listeners. Led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Ryan Perkins, the Indianapolis group is an intense but fun combination of punk-rock roots, psychedelic vibes, and a twisting, turning, angular punch that reminds me of Zappa, Beefheart, Sparks, the Residents, Snakefinger, Devo, and–well, I think you get the picture! The title track has a great “majestic” heavy-metal feel, but sabotages any generic possibilities with eccentric vocalizing and changes that feel like they come from Indiana avant-gurus MX-80 Sound, not Metallica. Dig “Opus & Absentia,” which seems to alternately reference Thin Lizzy, the Sweet, and Sparks–or something?–killer outta-kilter stuff! “Pistol” has a similar off-center heavy swagger–check them double leads! There are also some Chives favorites revived and re-arranged a bit: “Family Pearls,” “Payasso,” “Porcelain.” This is an amazing debut from a major talent who deserves to be known far outside Indiana and the Midwest!” –Eddie Flowers, Vulcher magazine
Forged deep in the dirty basements of Louisville, KY, Boa is a three-piece indie rock band that blends elements of psychedelic, funk, and rock music in an unique but impressive way. What they lack in numbers, they make up with soulful, well constructed harmonies matched with meaningful lyrics. Between the complex, yet catchy riffs and the precise, consistent drumming, Boa is a band that will surely get you dancing.
