‘Hello, I am boog.’
Philadelphia songwriter boog has opened the doors to his Rock and Roll citadel with his newest EP, Regency. A sonic departure from his eponymous 2011 solo album, Regency brings together fuzz-drenched drums, slapping vocal echoes, and spring-loaded guitar lines in a cowpunk-meets-doo-wop saga. Lyrically, the record explores warring concepts—guilt and freedom, power and longing, ambition and fear, success and ethic— through a courtly lense, mindful of the most magnificent king, the lowliest serf, and all hands in between. Lo-fi in sound, feudal in content, and Rock and Roll at heart, Regency follows the model of boog’s previous work, only in that it follows no model but its own.
boog will support Regency solo in concert through summer and fall 2012.
Buzz about Regency:
‘Regency, the latest EP from boog, serves as a reminder to us all that sometimes more can be done on 4 tracks than 24. boog’s unique style takes on a whole new dimension against clipping bass drums and overdriven guitars in a modern Nebraska-esque chaos and energy that only boog can create.’
