Boyracer - Pete Shelly EP
For the Pete Shelly EP, Chief Boyracer Stewart Anderson is joined by his spouse Jen Turrell and guitarist Matt Green. The title track starts off proceedings with a song that is as close to an anthem as you likely will get with crash pop. Replay it a few times - you deserve it. "2nd Wave Mod" is a footstomper with sneering vocals, pounding drums and sawing guitars. "The Kind of Man You Really Are" features a snaky groove. Jen takes the lead vocals for the more indie pop, and very tasty, "Jump". Play it loud, and play it proud. Farewells don't have to be sad.
The record is released by Emotional Response Records, which is a label run by Stewart Anderson and Jen Turrell, who together previously ran the labels 555 Records and Red Square. You can buy the vinyl or the digital download, and either one gets you two digital bonus tracks. You can order via Bandcamp, but Stew and Jen advise ordering though their website at the bottom of the post, as it will be less expensive.
