Boxer The Horse – Would You Please (Collagen Rock Records)

Of the current crop of bands from PEI making waves throughout the country, Boxer The Horse is my favorite of the bunch. Mixing witty, playful lyrics along with the guitar-pop sensibilities of the Kinks, the band doesn’t over think their role in the world of rock n roll and it is probably their most enduring quality. These are upbeat yet simple songs that will catch you by the ear and entrench themselves in your head. Highlights include Bad Apples, Mary Meets The Pilot and Chez Boxer (Hotel Song).
