Bell House
 
Bell House Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $14.00
Artist: Shy Boys
 
 
Quantity:
 

Preaching sounds of joy, Shy Boys have a unique, harmonious charm on their second album.   Consisting of brothers Collin and Kyle Raush, and friends Kyle Little, Konnor Ervin and Ross Brown, the Midwestern ensemble are far from as timid as their name suggests.  They aren't afraid to belt out a hard-hitting verse, giving us tender, heartfelt anthems.  “For a short album  - ten tracks in 24 minutes - it doesn't take long to recognize the beauty of ‘Bell House. The shimmering richness of the Raush brothers' vocals are enough to win you over. ‘Evil Sin’ shows off their talent; as the song begins you're consumed with blended, multi-layered vocals, a theme you'll be quick to notice throughout the album. The bouncy, yet invigorating track ‘Take the Doggie’ reflects on a time when they wanted to save a neighbor's dog from an abusive owner, embellished with speedy, twangy guitar.  The standout title track feels like a hazy dream. Slow in tempo, and sensitive, the steadiness makes a great transition to the end of the record as it bleeds into ‘Disconnect,’ a drawn-out song with shoegaze vibes, making it one of the albums more powerful moments. The record hooks you in from beginning to end, leaving a lasting impression one song after the next.” – Exclaim.ca  “Building beyond the success of their 2014 self-titled debut, the record draws its name from the house that the five band members shared on Bell Street, Kansas City.  Stories from the band describe a house with missing floors, six-foot-high weed-jungles in the back yard, and a strange chaotic atmosphere with a primary focus of music. Something of that spirit is conveyed in the complexion of this new album. Meandering stories, irregular shapes, and a variety of metaphorical shelters are offered, all supported by a cohesive core. At the center of this thing is the band’s ability to make good of madness. They may have inhabited a space of chaos, but the refined approach to the pursuit of harmony is rare.  Their fondness for layered vocal harmonies has drawn comparison to the Beach Boys. We all know what’s said about the Beach Boys.  However, that comparison unfairly short-changes the originality of the band. The atmospheric range of Shy Boys is somehow more democratic, and an unusual thing occurs when they sing. Halfway through this sequence, at track five – ‘Evil Sin’  - the sound hits you. This is not some retro-styled assimilation of apparent heroes. The tone of this band is entirely contemporary.  Layered voices are shaped by modern progressions. There’s an edge, depth, and awareness that places ‘Bell House’ as a significant, and oddly timeless album of these times.” – PopBollocks.com  GREAT!!
