I hadn’t noticed, but it’s been quite a long time since the lo-fi punk rock legends Boyracer released a full-length proper. But their new album, On A Promise, just recently came out, and it’s quite a corker. To be sure, Boyracer’s Stewart Anderson hit upon a distinctive sound thirty years ago and he remains true to it, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few surprises here and there. Case in point: the wonderful horns on opening track “Hit And Miss,” which adds a delightful depth to the band’s crash-pop stylings and Anderson’s punk rock snarl. It’s a great kick-off to a great album.
