The Boxing Lesson
The Boxing Lesson
- Fur State is our DIY instrumental psych cassette release that came out on 10/26/10. KVRX charted it on its Topless 39 every week during the first quarter of 2011 with Fur State reaching as high as #5. PRESS: "Well, the Boxing Lesson nails it on “Muerta.” Pink Floyd influences the music but there is more to their sound than a Floyd fixation. Elements of M83, the “Northern Soul”-period of The Verve, and the adventurousness of Ponytail all are present here. The effects-laden guitar weaves in and out of the soaring Moog parts, creating a sonic landscape that draws the listener in from the first sound.
Muerta has to be in my Top 10 for the year. There is just nothing like it out there." Jim Sells (Vivogig) "The Boxing Lesson are a package of many good things. I mean this is a trio who sounds like their band is in the Broken Social Scene level. They combine guitars synths and various of other sounds to make abundant soundscapes that just shine." We All Want Someone to Shout For (US) "Not enough bands make music like The Boxing Lesson any more.
Over the course of three EPs, they've managed to create some truly breathtaking and epic music that draw the dots between such seemingly disparate bands as Pink Floyd, My Bloody Valentine and David Bowie. They're equally at home writing short, concise pop songs, and kicking out the jams. They use a Moog synth extensively. In short, unlike a lot of bands, they're consistently interesting." - Craig Franklin / Halo-17 (Australia) "Austin's The Boxing Lesson give an American update to fuzzy, atmospheric, UK Shoegazer song textures.
From the opening track, the Spiritualized-esque "Dark Side Of The Moog" (my pick for song title of the year) onward, The Boxing Lesson creates vast, all-encompassing soundscapes worthy of the best of the original UK scene." - Snob's Music (UK) "The Boxing Lesson's sound as if Failure and Pink Floyd got together to drink mushroom tea out of fancy little teacups and chase the white rabbit with Brian Eno and Robert Smith" - Indiecision (India) Discography: Possibilities (TBA) Muerta EP (2011) Fur State (2010) Wild Streaks & Windy Days (2008) Songs in the Key of C (2006) Radiation (2004) The Boxing Lesson EP (2003) CONTACT: Management / Publicity / Booking: Spaceboxer SPACEBOXER [AT] GMAIL [DOT] COM Ph - 512-466-3603 Read more on Last.fm.
