New episode of Boschcast

Friday, November 18th, 2005

Here’s the latest episode of Boschcast, the official Bosch podcast, hosted by our own Brett Beyer. Download Boschcast for Nov. 18, 2005. This ‘cast previews our latest release, Buy One, Get One.

Reviews of the album are starting to hit the net and print. We keep track of them here. This one from Read Magazine looks good:

It’s nice to hear a garage band doing something different. The Bosch have a full, shuffling sound with a keyboard player who also plays sax and clarinet. The horns give them a 50s rock influence, especially on a couple of hand-clapping numbers and the ballady “Teenage Symphony.” Along with rockabilly drumming, skanky upbeat horn lines, and good Lou Reed-ish rock vox, they’re raucous in a Who meets the White Light/White Heat era Velvets way, but executed with good, clean fun.

Smother.net: The Bosch- Buy One, Get One

These guys would probably steal little children’s lollipops only to throw them into the gutter right in front of them. Why? Not because they’re inherently evil but because they’re “reaction observers”. How else could you explain a band whose obviously influenced by The Ramones, The White Stripes, and the Violent Femmes and then set off to record a garage rock album as raunchy as the lip curling Mick Jagger. It’s loud and rowdy with a bit of surf rock added to the top. Fortunately it doesn’t sound as derivative as the bevy of other garage rock bands out there with “The” names.

A little of this, a little of that

Thanks to all the Bosch faithful who braved the weather to come out to Trash for the show last night!

In other news, Buy One, Get One is now available on the iTunes Music Store

Metronome leads off this week’s WOXY weekly podcast show Unsigned which features promising unsigned artists… See www.woxy.com for more info. I’ve been listening to the WOXY stream during the last couple of days and it really is a great indie rock radio station.

What else? We’ve lined up a nice little tour outside the city in early December. Here’s the itinerary:
Monday Dec. 4 – The Boar’s Nest, Norfolk, VA
Tuesday Dec. 5 – Galaxy Hut, Arlington, VA
Wednesday Dec. 6 – Sharkey’s, Blacksburg, VA

Finally, we found the first review of our new CD, “Buy One, Get One,” from independentsonly.com. It’s short, so here’s the whole thing:

Did I hear a Rolling Stone’s influence? I heard a lot of influences on this disc from Brooklyn’s The Bosch. It’s sixties psychedelic rock infused with elements of ska and punk. It’s freaking great! Completely engulfing you with a delivery of spastic, high-energy guitars and vocals, The Bosch don’t bring to mind New York… more like the British invasion that brought the world The Kinks. The saxophone leads the rhythm of almost all tracks but often pushed aside by surf riffs and a haunting organ.
R.I.Y.L.: The Buzzcocks, The Kinks, The Who

As always, you can buy the disc at CD Baby.
