Pittsburgh “Northern Pop” artist BADBOXES caught my ear today with their debut EP JSMN. While I don’t normally like playing music mixologist, this band sounds like 1 part Passion Pit, 1 part Postal Service with a zest of psychedelia and house to it. Every song offers a handful of pleasant surprises that make it an enjoyable ride. I can promise that you wont find yourself bored listening to this album.
Album highlights for me include “Northern Lights”, “Faded” and “The Morning”. That being said this album is impressive throughout.
Go download the album at their website for a price that you can name. Throw ’em a buck or two and you’ll get some quality tunes to keep forever. You’ve definitely spent money on dumber things.
