After almost a year, BoomBox is proud to announce they will again be embarking on a West Coast tour in support of their latest release ‘downriverelectric’. Special guest Dark Party (Eliot Lipp+Leo 123), who just released their first full-length album ‘Light Years,’ will be supporting on all dates.
BoomBox, born out of legendary Muscle Shoals, features Producer/Engineer/DJ/Drummer Russ Randolph and Producer/DJ/Vocalist/Guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux. This pair of dynamic artists uses their rich musical history, inspiring vision and pop culture influences to deliver a style of music distinctly different from anything heard in the live music scene today. Their signature sound and high-energy shows bring live music to a new, elevated level.
BoomBox released their sophomore album, downriverelectric (available on iTunes) on June 30, 2010 using analog recording sessions and some of the same vintage gear as their Muscle Shoals predecessors. The album, with over 5000 units moved via their website in the first month, pays homage to the musical memoirs of Muscle Shoals’ past and to the rhythm of the Tennessee River, which has long inspired the group. From brand new cuts such as Dungeons and Watergun to live fan favorites Headchange and Mr. Boogie Man, the album deliberately weaves a variety of dance frenzy beats filled with catchy songwriting and soul shuttering low end.
Dark Party (Eliot Lipp+Leo 123) was born from a deep rooted friendship and a mutual love of music. After a pair of single releases in early 2010, Dark Party (Eliot Lipp+Leo 123) announces the release their full-length album Light Years on November 2, 2010 through Old Tacoma Records and 1320 Records. Weaving spacey electro, west coast funk, and sharp melodic synths, the duo creates pulsating dance rhythms that will set your feet on fire. It’s been years in the making but well worth the wait.
