Album Notes
Boho Zen's fourth independent release, "Release Me" (pun fully intended), represents their latest foray into the world of Power Pop, delivering six tunes ranging from chugging, guitar-based numbers ((Drink Her) Pretty, My Neighbor's Mother) to lighter, more vocally-based tunes (Wouldn't It Be?, Paper Houses).

The band is comprised of Howard Fencl (guitars and vocals) and Bob Walker (drums and vocals), who've made music together for decades. "Release Me" has already received accolades from both Cleveland Magazine and Scene Magazine. Prior Boho Zen discs got positive reviews from Big Takeover and Free Times magazines and led to a profile of Bob in Modern Drummer.

In the mold of XTC and Cheap Trick, to whom Boho Zen's music's been frequently compared, "Release Me" charges full steam ahead with a unique combination of musical aggression and sonic nuance.

The pieces were recorded by Don Depew of 609 Studios (of Guided By Voices and Cobra Verde fame) and mastered by Jim DeMain (among others, John Hiatt and Elton John). "Release Me," indeed.

As a longtime fan of Boho Zen, I can honestly say that this is by far thier strongest and most coherent effort to date. They are faster, louder, and more aggressive than ever. Longtime indie rock vet Don DePew (Cobra Verde, Guided by Voices, Terminal Lovers)puts his signature spin on things as the engineer, especially in making the guitars brutally heavy and the drums as colossal as can be. My personal favorites are Your Neighbor's Mother,which reminds me of another classic band of buzz-saw tunesmiths, Husker Du. The last track, wouldn't it be? it amazing and should be played at least five times on repeat in one sitting, very lush, bouncy, and XTC-esque. In other words, a perfect closing song. Bottom line: give it a listen! These guys deserve it!
PS- they sometimes use my old bedroom as a demo recording space :)
