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.

Yumi Zouma - Album Review: Truth or Consequences
30 Mar 2020 // by Lou Clement
Yumi Zouma are a four-piece band who formed in New Zealand and have seen international success with their brand of dreamy beach pop – effortlessly upbeat and post-party feels. It’s music that I can always put on my playlist repeat loop.

Gig Review: Fat Freddy's Drop @ Thames Racecourse, Thames - 28/12/2019
08 Jan 2020 // by Lou Clement
When Fat Freddy’s Drop announced their Summer Album tour, with dates across New Zealand, I had the feeling of the holiday season beginning. I went along to the first of the tour dates that began their extensive list of stop offs and took place in the lazy in between days of the Christmas-New Year break.

Dead Little Penny - Album River: Urge Surfing
13 Nov 2019 // by Lou Clement
Dead Little Penny released their debut album Urge Surfing on 13 November 2019. It’s nine tracks of electro-industrial, synthesiser-infused melodic, dirge-drifting fun.
Gig Review: Pitch Black @ Neck of the Woods, Auckland - 17/10/2019
18 Oct 2019 // by Lou Clement
The legendary Christchurch act Pitch Black whipped up an electronica storm at Neck of Woods, Auckland on their Third Light Tour on 17 October 2019. Taking the audience with them on a visual and musical journey, the duo kicked off their international tour, with this, their first date of twelve, which will take them to London, Amsterdam and Berlin over the coming months.
Gig Review: Troy Kingi @ The Tuning Fork, Auckland - 26/09/2019
04 Oct 2019 // by Lou Clement
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. This was the first of a three date New Zealand tour, following the release of his latest album Holy Colony Burning Acres and tonight he played to a sold out crowd.
