BORIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS!! Have gone a bit odd on the first of their series of three 'Heavy Rock Hits' 7"s on Southern Lord. Odd for them anyway, developing the hair metal influence apparent on Smile into a more shoegazey indie rock sound that has me reaching for the My Vitriol comparison for the second time this week.. You wait ages for a bus to come along etc. etc. Obviously '8' is loads better than that though, if only for Wata's epic twiddles - she's the queen of the mighty solo! 'Hey Everyone' revolves around the most simplistic of caveman beats and the most bizarre of lyrics: they seem to be discussing some sort of unfortunate situation involving 'heavy castanets' in voices reminiscent of Kurt Cobain in the verses and Bobby Gillespie in the chorus. This probably doesn't sound very good in theory but there's definitely something about it in practice and it's Boris after all..
