Strange is Good
Strange Boys are young lads hailing from Austin, Texas, (not to be confused with StrangeBoys from Halifax, NS), who have got that bluesy rock and roll swagger down pat. They've got the slurred drawl of say, Bob Dylan and a rough unfinished sound that you can image coming out of the speakers of a dusty forgotten used record store owned by someone older than your grandfather. The Strange Boys could be compared to the Black Lips, but foregoing the pop-sensibilities and creating a mood that seems just right for sitting on a porch in a forgotten time, drinking cold beverages and watching the world go by.
