Over the course of a year and a half, MiniBoone has made Brooklyn their own personal protectorate, decimating human audiences while twisting melodies and swinging instruments wildly above their heads. With three rotating front-men and a rhythm section made of angry rotating swords, they channel the mechanical abandon of Devo while evoking the lyrical resonance and emotional power of Springsteen.
The distinctive brand of American-strange rock and roll formed from this mixture may be at odds with the prevailing lo-fi strains emanating from New York City these days, but it has won them converts of everyone from the Village Voice to NPR. Since January 2010's Big Changes EP (Drug Front Records), The L Magazine bestowed upon them the prestigious title of one of the "8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear" in April, and the video for their can-you-be-in-a-hardcore-band-and-still-like-Kylie-Minogue standout "Cool Kids Cut Out of the Heart Itself" was featured on the first episode of the Flavorpill Fix. Live, MiniBoone is a genuine thrill, and has displayed its explosion of sentient energy at Northside Festival, Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge, and the Rocks Off Concert Cruise Ship amongst many others.
Now MiniBoone is adding more fuel to the fire with a new 7" released in March 2011. "The Other Summer" is an exhaustingly frenetic Andrew W.K. "hiding on the backstreets" opus, clocking in at nearly six minutes. On the other side, "Fight Song" is an immaculate specimen of fractured pop glory. Look for a new EP this summer and their first LP in the fall.
As the world's youth continue to define their existence against the ideas of love and confusion, MiniBoone hope to provide a suitable soundtrack.
