How many? And are they boys? Oh, they’re Two Boys Alright, let there be no doubt about that. Chucking together heavily distorted guitars, floating vocals and an organ’s bass pedals was perhaps one of the best choices they ever made. Hazy Realms, released on exactly 100 cassettes at honestly a cutthroat rate, is great - and a great promise of their future.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 19 March 2015
Regular readers to my ramblings will remember my constant endless and boring waffle about how good the EIAFUAWN album from last year was. Really, truly ...check it out. It’s marvellous.
The reason I bring it up is that Two Boys Alright contain members of that an amazing band and produce a sound that is not that far removed. They are obviously in love with the same early '90’s mystery rock as me, opener ‘Possessed’ is driven along on a fantastic Sonic Youth like riff - its murky as if its been dug up and is full of spoil. These chunky riffs and plaintive vocal delivery were also a feature of Lou Barlow’s early Sentridoh/Sebadoh stuff. The ramshackle lo-fi ‘Into Orbit’ kinda recalls that first Soft Walls tape.
The remainder of the tape follows similar murky territory with nods to Bedhead (‘Broadcast From The Halycon Void’) and Atlas Sound (‘Made of Hair’). A wonderfully distorted sloth of a record.
