BOY CRISIS are a FOUNTAIN OF epic jams for today’s YOUTH (not ‘kids’). They also taste like STRAWBERRIES.

♫ Boy Crisis – Fountain Of Youth

A part of me feels like Boy Crisis might be my new favorite band. Why reserve hesitation on the subject? Because I can’t find their debut album any-fucking-where! I scoured the interwebs and dug up a few jams but I want more damn it, more! I want to review the album! (you listening guys?) Boy Crisis only made their way through my ears recently when “Dressed To Digress” was hyped as the dancey side project of one half of Das Racist. (I’m sold already.) Upon falling hard for that track, and then even harder for “Fountain Of Youth,” I now feel like a tween girl when I yell “I’m having a Boy Crisis!” on the walk to work in the morning. I guess I should phrase it differently but I am too busy busting fresh dance moves and kissing other people’s grandmas. Yeah, this music is that good. As are both versions of the video.

♫ Boy Crisis – Strawberries

Boy Crisis went to Wesleyan University MGMT and have been drawing unfair comparisons to the art-douche duo. Lest you think Boy Crisis are a similarly educated 3-hit wonder I have included the sex-fest “Strawberries” and can also vouch for the gritty magic of “L’homme.” Oh, and “Strawberries”  includes the lyric “don’t you know I wanna smack that like it owes me money.” Epic. MGMT’s crowning lyric was “Shock me like an electric eel.” Ouch. I think “PWNED!” is what the kids are saying these days? Anyway, MGMT-boners can get bent because I don’t care about your tears, these guys make everyday a party and that’s where I want to be.

    B,

    Cool find, I was unusually hooked by the fountain of youth, just a great song, cool lyrics, great voice, etc. Found some stuff from them on Zune and asides from the strawberries tune, they lost me. The album sounds like a unplugged version of them with lots of sound exploration, weird takes, and slow/depressing singing, that is just boring and extremely annoying. After the first 10 seconds of each song I just push next to be completely dissapointed yet again. Couldn't take 18 mines strawberries of that so I am not even bothering to download. I am also hoping to find their debut album, hoping that their fountain of youth style is intact which was the reason of my hook.

    What about “L'Homme” and “Dressed to Digress”? They are great! Too bad you weren't into the others. Nobody has sent me the album yet so I haven't heard them!

    Never mind my previous comments, upon further review I realized the album is a collection by desolation records. Boy Crisis is just featured with the Strawberries song, oops. If I ever get a hold of the album I will let you know, and I do like dressed to digress, investigating L'Homme.

    What a pleasant gift! I have seriously searched high and low for this album, in both pay and free forms, and to no avail. I have even tried pulling my weight as a “blogger” with multiple emails to the band and management. Nowhere you come along and make it all look so easy! I will be enjoying this STAT!
