The debut EP from Kansas sextet, Boo And Boo Too is a nice preview of what we should expect from their full length which is set to release in August of 2008. The band is young and seems to be on the verge of a fresh career where they have nothing to lose by having fun. Sort of like Weezer used to be. Remember those days? If you check out their myspace (myspace.com/booandbootoo) you won't find a mass of press clippings and quotes meticulously arranged by publicists. Instead, you'll see a short review of their live show by someone who really didn't like them. It's obvious Boo don't take themselves very seriously, except when it comes to their music.

The songs on their self-titled EP have the drive and recklessness of a Pixies' album, especially "Couch on Fire". Of course, you can't really compare their lead singer to Frank Black but possibly Hot Hot Heat's Brandon Flowers. Still, the guitar feedback laden, 120 beat per minute songs have an unruliness that's only fortified by the thrash jams interspersed throughout the disc. The vocals on the first two tracks are set way back and allow space for the Pavement-style instrumentals which make up a good portion of the record. Boo slows things down a bit with "You Are A Tide" but it doesn't last long. Like their career, the band is full of energy and creativity and the last thing they're about to do is slow down.
