Boom Chick is a rock n' roll duo consisting of Frank Hoier on guitar & vocals and Moselle Spiller on drums. Boom Chick's sound is born out of an ecstatic love for early American rock n' roll. They have released one full album to date, and have completed two across America tours and one European tour since they named their band in 2009.
Frank was already a seasoned songwriter and solo act before he met artist Moselle, and found in her a wily, high energy co-conspirator. Boom Chick was soon fully realised after a hectic year packed with countless sweaty loft parties, constant creation in their industrial Brooklyn practice space, & hard-charging tours.
Their performances of lovingly practiced original co-written songs beam with a confident hunger.
With their raw and passionate live show, Boom Chick has been known to melt cold, cold hearts and set folks to dancing in the aisles. Moselle attacks the drums with a ferocious femininity, and Frank's amplified howl slaps back to the era when a man spoke his mind, creating a sound that delivers on all those things that rock n' roll promised us so long ago.
"Show Pony" (released November 2010) is shot through with all the love and bones you can pack onto two-inch tape, and revels in Frank & Moselle's myriad influences, from their shared love of atomic 50's rock n' roll, spooky Delta blues, reverb-laced surf rock and 60's girl group melodies, to the bright torches they carry for the classic catalogs of Chess & Sun Records.
Frank and Moselle are currently plotting a series of 7" records, their second full album release, and third across America tour for Fall 2011.
Fingers of the Sun
When Homer talked about "young Dawn with her rose-red fingers," in the Odyssey, he was probably putting down for the ages the oral tradition of the Greeks passed on for hundreds of years through lyrical phrases set to a kind of primeval music. So it seems as only fitting that some band would come along to likewise borrow some strands from an older era and put them side-by-side with modern elements in a way to make it all resonate with a vibrant creativity. Fingers of the Sun from Denver does exactly that. This lively sextet takes classic pop structures and warps the lines with psychedelic flourishes while grounding it all with impeccable four-part harmonies. Built on the ruins of the indie pop band The Pseudo Dates, this group picked up where the Pseudos left off and turned into a more sonically ambitious outfit lead by the talented songwriting team of Nathan Brasil and Suzi Allegra. Musically, this charming bunch of rapscallions are the descendents of Arthur Lee, Syd Barrett, Ray Davies and Anton Newcombe. But instead of mimicking their artistic forebears, Fingers of the Sun are forging something their own by truly crafting material almost in reaction to how sloppy so much songwriting of the present seems to be. If indeed Fingers of the Sun is indirectly named after the goddess Aurora, it's fitting enough for a kind of music that has elements of the familiar but always feels like something new
Two Tone Wolf Pack
Close your eyes. Picture the biggest tree you've ever seen. And there's a hole in the bottom of that tree. You climb through the hole to the other side of the tree and find your best friends in the whole world gathered around. There's a bubbling creek, there are birds chirping, and the scent of spring is in the air. As you ponder what you would name this event..... Blam!!!! 35 mile-an-hour-bears and TWO TONE WOLF PACK
