ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An eclectic ensemble of eight Boston musicians known as The Blind King celebrated the release of their second CD, "'Til You're Gone" on Saturday, January 14 at The Lizard Lounge.

"'Til You're Gone," recorded at Boston's Q-Division Studios, and released on the band's own label, Careful Records, is an intimate and contemplative album reminiscent of the Tindersticks, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave. The Blind King will appeal to fans of quiet-core, alt-country, indie pop, psychedelia, and classic folk music. Live, the eight members of The Blind King play a variety of instruments, such as accordion, trumpet, mandolin, theramin, lap steel and cello. The songs ebb and flow with such ease it sounds as if the band is sitting in your living room performing just for you.

This is a city known for its singer/songwriters and The Blind King's Josh Boughey is one of Boston's undiscovered gems. His simple songs manage to avoid cliché while exploring the lives of his characters in an informal story-telling style. Continuing to build on the book of excellent songs from The Blind King's first CD, "One" (aka: "The SilentWheel"), the new album boasts some of Boughey's finest work to date. One of the album's strongest songs, the lilting waltz "Her Grey City," recently received an Honor Award from The Great American Songwriting Contest. Other standouts such as "Punk Rock Dream" and "Driving in America," reflect on both our inner and outer lives. The haunting melodies and thoughtful lyrics will stay with you long after each listen.
