Album Notes
"Easily one of the most important local releases of the year."
-Pittsburgh City Paper, 7.10.07

"...the band's music takes on a mellow, golden glow-- think Neil Young circa 'Harvest' crossed with the hipster cool of Neko Case."
-Pittsburgh Tribune Review, 7.12.07

"Led by singer-songwriter Hallie Pritts, Boca Chica’s second record “Transform Into Beasts” is so good, so great sounding, it deserves some national attention (come on, tastemaker Web sites!). Pritts, joined by Susanna Meyer, Greg Dutton, Megan Williams and Matt Miller, has crafted a record that should win the hearts of those who love artists such as the Decemberists, Laura Veirs, Bright Eyes, Amy Millan, Wilco, and Jolie Holland. “Paper Way” kicks off the album gently but whim­sically, and it leads into “Cobblestones,” which is treated with picked gui­tar, banjo and strings, and “Beasts,” which reasons, “We all want the things we all learn to fear.” “Blackberries” gets a tad spooky, with accor­dion and Murder by Death­style arrangement. Ballad “Rooftops … Alleyways” is one of the disc’s highlights. “My Favorite Rock Stars” should bring any audience to its knees with its Midwestern taste and Neil Young-style guitar power, and “Big Calm” grasps listeners’ hands, assures them delicately, and urges, 'Just take a rest/settle down/take a drink.' Those who attend the CD show, take Pritts’ advice."
- Brian Krasman, The McKeesport Daily News 7.12.07
