Any schmuck can wire a condenser mic up to GarageBand and record himself alt-whining while a USB-powered fan makes ripples on his Abbey Road wall tapestry. But NYC-based band the Danger Boys use this as one of their many strategies (minus the tapestry) and actually come up with intelligent tunes that cross genres and poke fun at popular trends. It's not a gimmick, though. Their songs are genuinely great.
The duo's first full-length record was mixed by Andrew Weiss, who's worked in the past with bands like Ween, Butthole Surfers, and the Boredoms. The album's single, "Argentina," is an introspective psych song with some goofy white boy R&B mixed in. Check it out, but be careful. Apparently, these boys are dangerous.
