Box Elders live on Radio Freedonia

  Box Elders Live
on Radio Freedonia
Tuesday, March 16, 2010 2-4pm

Omaha, Nebraska’s Box Elders will be on Radio Freedonia, Tuesday, March 16, 2-4pm, just before their "WTJU Presents" show at the Tea Bazaar and upcoming tour with the Black Lips. The band will perform live, spin some favorites, and discuss their music. If you don’t know them yet, Box Elders are lo-fi, garage-pop perfection, and their album "Alice & Friends" was topping the WTJU Rock charts back when it was released in the summer of '09. The Raven Sings the Blues blog is pretty spot on when they describe them this way:

Stripping the fidelity off of mid-60's teeny-bopper pop, Nebraska's Box Elders deliver a garage gem that's full of head bobbing pep and damn near squeezable melodies. Rattle-trap drums pop and crash behind the heartfelt garage pop of the McIntyre brothers. Slip a single cut of "stay" into a beat up sleeve and drop it into a mixed bin of 45s and you'd probably convince quite a few diggers they've found a long lost gem; conjuring up images of clean cut matching suits and monochrome sets. Elsewhere the boys pepper in bits of surf, an organ playing drummer and a swinging rumble of bass to drive the pulse and a pretty sweet record is born.
