BOCA CHICA

Transform Into Beasts

2007-11-07

Boca Chica, or “small mouth” have drawn critical acclaim with their debut full-length album “Transform into Beasts”. This Pittsburgh PA band has received attention from the likes of NPR and The Pittsburgh City Paper. The attention is well deserved. Boca Chica, mainly the creative outlet of one Hallie Pritts, has a folksy, somewhat blue grassy sound. Plenty of acoustic guitars, banjos and Fender Telecasters to satisfy any country lover, but hip enough to please the average Sufjan Stevens fan. “Transform into Beasts” is open and light, but warm enough not to leave the listener stranded. On a recent road trip through the heart of the country, I found the album fit well with the landscape. As thousands of Oklahoma trees whizzed by half cloaked in the morning mist “Transform into Beasts” proved to be the perfect American soundtrack.--Tim Warren
