What's up rockers? Please allow me to introduce to you my featured band of the week, Only Living Boy! They are one of the best local bands around, and you NEED to check out their new EP, Cool Collected Headcase! I will be rocking out 3 brand new tracks this week to celebrate their EP release party at The Asbury Lanes on Saturday, April 27th!
In their own words,
"Calling them a power trio would be an understatement. Everything about New Jersey's Only Living Boy suggests that they craft their music to hit listeners with the blunt force trauma of a wrecking ball: powerful, destructive, and with plenty of swing. Taking their name from the classic Simon and Garfunkel song "Only Living Boy in New York", a song that preferred to make veiled references hinting at conflict, Only Living Boy, the band, takes the opposite approach. While most bands use the blender analogy to describe their sounds, Only Living Boy treats it more like a rock and roll stew. All of the ingredients are front and center and each one helps to contribute to a delicious musical treat. Frontman Joe Cirotti slings his Fender Stratocaster over his shoulder in a pose reminiscent of many of the greats who have made the Strat their instrument of choice. Whether it be the ferocity of Jimi Hendrix, the Texas blues of Stevie Ray Vaughn, or the soul of Jeff Buckley, he has feel and chops to validate the comparisons. Alongside bassist Eric Curley, whose bass playing is as intricate as John Entwistle and as heavy as Cliff Burton, and drummer Trevor Newcomb, who channels all the fiercest drummers from Bill Ward to Bonzo, there's nothing that any true rock and roller wouldn't love about this band. Through their dedicated road schedule, their unmatched live show and their most recent full length Hide Nothing, Only Living Boy has attracted the attention of notable publications throughout the tri-state area like The Aquarian, The Star Leger and Jersey Beat, sat in for a couple sessions at Daytrotter, garnered an unsigned band of the month feature in the nationally published niche publication High Times, as well as securing radio airplay everywhere from Fort Lauderdale to Fresno to Fairbanks. Their video for "I Hear Music" was featured on MTV Latin America, as well as dozens of other locations, and all of this has put the band on the right track and in the good graces of listeners. All of this may seem like a tough act to follow, but Only Living Boy's answer is simple, keep the same recipe, but make it louder, heavier and even more in your face than anything they've done yet. A good taste (pun intended) of this is the new Spread Your Butter EP which is a double A-side single with the title track "Spread Your Butter" and the equally delicious "Scrambled Eggs". For these new tracks, the band returned to the studio once again with producer Paul Ritchie (from Roadrunner Records' act The Parlor Mob) and emerged with new tracks that will make old fans drool for more and turn the uninitiated into die-hards with just a few listens to the monster riffs, screaming harmonica and raw, unapologetic energy that hints at something in between Queens of the Stone Age Songs For The Deaf and Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger. But don't think that Only Living Boy is going to stop with just two new tunes. Spread Your Butter is just the first of three EPs that the band will be releasing between now and the summer of 2013, at which point they will pile them all together for a full-length vinyl release (bonus song included). The next two EPs were recorded at the legendary SST studios in Weehawken, NJ with Billy Perez and are poised to fuel the Only Living Boy fire. If that's not enough, the band has also released a live cover of Queens of the Stone Age's "God Is In The Radio" through their Bandcamp page. All of this combined with a regular touring cycle and NYC and Philly residencies, as well as a stop at SXSW 2013, assures that everybody will have a chance to get their own little taste of Only Living Boy. But make sure to bring your appetite, because OLB has goods enough to make a fat man want another piece of cake..."
