ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After releasing two EPs in Los Angeles, songwriter Paul Waclawsky left the haze for the heat of Austin, Texas, where he found a new line up and new inspirations. Jaylinn Davidson and Jake Mitchell share the exact same birthday and an affinity for synths, sampling and old records. Jaylinn's Moog bass and leads connect with Jake's explosive evolving rhythms to form a hybrid rhythm section. Part organic. Part Electronic. Part Out-of-Fucking-Space. It's definitely psychedelic but not in the traditional sense. Inspired by synthesizer exploration and joined by producer Tim Gerron in the studio, the band recorded and released Songs in the Key of C in 2006 and played a blizzard of shows at home and on the road.

The Boxing Lesson spent most of 2007 in Austin, TX, crafting their debut full length album, Wild Streaks & Windy Days, with Grammy-nominated Producer Tim Gerron. It's a simultaneously modern and classic journey through the dark side of the conscious mind. These new tracks explore the contrasts between dark and light, love and lust, sacrifice and indulgence. Lead boxer, Paul Waclawsky, flexes his songwriting muscles and his space echoes like never before on this ageless recording inspired by the exploding Austin indie music scene. Paul's voice shows maturity and his epic sonic guitar textures are psychedelic and lush. Jaylinn Davidson's Brian Eno-esque Moog synthesizer landscapes pump these haunting songs full of moody goodness and we find Jake Mitchell, as always, in the ether, drumming out of his head.

Independent of comparison, the 12 new tracks on Wild Streaks & Windy Days define The Boxing Lesson's own brand of psychedelic rock, as they traverse into the unknown territory of their own lives, their own indulgences and the road that lay ahead.

Great Austin Band
I heard this on Myspace and I am glad I bought the CD. I have had people ask me who they were after hearing bits and pieces of it. The cd has a feel of Pink Floyd. I like to put it on while I am working. It's awesome and all songs on the cd are good. Muerta is my fave.
