The Brian Boggess Group is a New York City rock band that conjures up a broad scope of classic influences, wielding sharp musical instincts and a twist of madness. Brian spent his formative years in New York City, the Pacific Ring of Fire, and Hong Kong. When Boggess decided it was time to record, he had a very specific idea in mind: “I’ve always considered analog recording superior to digital recording, at least for what I do.” Boggess says, “I wanted to make a vinyl record.”
The EP opens with “Indigo,” firmly establishing a unique and literate voice with broad strokes of avant jazz and power-pop hooks. The introspective slow burn of “Jack Knife” jangles with a haunting melody; amid its air condition-cool cynicism, the lyrics reveal an unbending perseverance in the face of strife. The playfully perverse, rockin’, and tongue in cheek “Mistress Anya Knees” kicks off side two of the vinyl which is followed by the anthemic closer “I Remember When.”
The EP was recorded onto 2" tape with Grammy-winning engineer Geoff Sanoff at Stratosphere Sound, and with the addition of longtime friend and renowned jazz pianist Jon Davis (Jaco Pastorius, Stan Getz) on organ. Grammy-nominated engineer Joe Lambert (Washed Out) mastered the record and cut the lacquers for the 12” vinyl.
