Boom! Boom! Deluxe! - Album Review: TeenageJuvenileDelinquentRocknRollHorrorBeachParty

20 Mar 2019 // A review by Lou Clement

Boom! Boom! Deluxe! are an Auckland-based four piece and this month they release their new album TeenageJuvenileDelinquentRocknRollHorrorBeachParty.

From the opening track of their new album Boom! Boom! Deluxe impart a fun, retro sound which made me want to don a swing dress, apply red lippy and go in search of a vinyl-playing jukebox (and a dance partner).

The album is fast-paced, energetic and rarely let’s up. It is a confident output and an enjoyable listen, and it really feels like the band are having a good time too.

What the album also shows off is what four musicians invested in 1950/60’s rock n roll and rockabilly can bring to the genre in a contemporary setting. It’s not a new sound, but it is nostalgic, well-produced and I’m a particular fan of the double bass which is interwoven throughout the album tracks.

The slightly seductive track Slap My Bottom made me smile and then laugh, the breathy rendition is reminiscent of starlets of the 1950’s and yet it had a cheeky tone to it. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, I can imagine it will be a good track to hear live.

The finger clicking and opening notes of Everybody Rolls typifies the album, it’s infectious listening and catching the band on their upcoming tour will be a great chance to enjoy the entertainment and performance factor that this band bring to their music.

Another favourite was Dial M for Murder with its harmonica playing and twanging guitar solo, had pace and energy. TeenageJuvenileDelinquentRocknRollHorrorBeachParty is an entertaining album which is sure to be a hit amongst fans new and established.

Boom! Boom! Deluxe!’s new release is out 29 March 2019.

Troy Kingi delivered a mash up of reggae, funk and soul as he debuted an album of politically laced tracks and performed for an enthusiastic crowd at the Tuning Fork in Auckland.

Ben Ruegg - Album Review: The Road (Remastered)
22 May 2019 // by Lou Clement
Auckland-based musician Ben Ruegg’s album The Road, frets through emotion-laden lyrics and surges from an acoustic-indie tone to a rockier bent with nostalgic guitar solos and drums. The album is stitched together with Ruegg’s refined and considered vocals.
Gig Review: Broods @ Auckland Town Hall, Auckland - 16/05/2019

Broods have found international fame and success and welcoming them back to home turf was an enthusiastic crowd at the grand setting of Auckland Town Hall. Well known sister and brother duo, Georgia and Caleb Nott are Broods, and for this gig they were joined on stage by other musicians to accompany their set.

Gig Review: Milk & Honey @ Whammy Bar, Auckland - 08/03/2019
11 Mar 2019 // by Lou Clement
International Women’s Day, in my experience, is often not marked by celebrations other than something official in the news – something with flowers and over-privileged celebrity-like figures at the mic. It’s the first year I’ve lived in Auckland for it though, and to find that celebrations planned for the occasion with music performances taking place as part of a curated event were exciting.
