I originally posted about Boyskout two years ago when they released their debut. As you can see below, I was quite smitten. I still am…this time by the range and sophistication of their follow-up, Another Life. They go from fragile innocence (“Everybody Knew”) to smoldering spite (“Happy Yet?”) without letting up on the sexually charged energy. Welcome back, girls.

Original post from 8/25/2004:
Boyskout are not boys at all. In fact, I don’t even think they are “into” boys, if you get my drift… So why is it that I feel all special inside every time I listen to “Back to Bed”? Because something about their black magic new wave transcends sexual politics and brings out the freak in me.

  1. Hmmm, interesting considering they are not from Salford, Glasgow, Belfast or anywhere else in the UK. That said it's a bit like having Curve, Elastica, Siouxsie and The Banshees fused together with just a touch of PJ Harvey and dash of the Levellers. Original? Not really but that doesn't mean it's not good.
