Hey there, b boys and b girls. Today, we’ve got a fresh recording of a local Brooklyn trio, B Boys. These guys mine the rich territory of late ’70s post-punk acts like Wire and the Buzzcocks mixed with a more modern garage-y sound. You may have caught them playing out recently at Silent Barn or one of the final shows at Death By Audio last November. They’re in the studio right now recording their first album, but meanwhile they’re also sharing a studio version of “Other Head” on their Bandcamp page. We caught up with B Boys opening up for Tyvek at Silent Barn last month and were surprised at how catchy these tunes are. Their short, to-the-point set will no doubt leave you wanting more, but only after you’ve had the poppy “I Don’t Mind” and the aggro “Psycho” on repeat for a while, not to mention the weird, bendy “Other Head.”
I recorded this set with the AKGs in front of the board combined with a feed from Silent Barn’s Yaman Palak. The sound is as raw as punk rock should be. Enjoy!
