The Boxing Lesson at The Milestone tonight (2/26/12)

Posted By on Sun, Feb 26, 2012 at 8:50 AM

THE BOXING LESSON This bass-less Austin trio say they play psychedelic prog, a phrase which too often conjures Rick Wakeman’s robes and cheesy Roger Dean illustrations. But not here, thankfully. Relying on MOOG for bottom end and tons of sonic noise, the songs blend Meddle-era Floyd guitar freak-outs with M83 propulsion, Spiritualized soul space jams with Texas rock ’n’ roll thunder. It’s a hybrid that looks on paper like it can’t — no, shouldn’t — really work. But that, as they say, is why they play the games; somehow it all comes together into something pretty compelling. Touring behind their 2011 EP Muerta and their new 7-inch, Health Is the New Drug. With Concord’s Technology for Nuns and others TBA. $6-$9. The Milestone.
