iTunes Editors’ Notes

Waukesha, Wisconsin’s BoDeans have been performing their unpretentious no-frills roots rock since the mid-80s when their music fell under the alternative ‘college rock’ umbrella. In 2008, with the release of their eighth studio album, Still, the BoDeans more closely align with the alt-country movement. Their tunes strike a stronger western theme, their accents shift towards Americana, and their pop energy has been slightly modified to reflect the years of road wear and life experience. No longer kids singing about the first flush of love, Kurt Neumann and Sammy Llanas turn their attentions to the resilient human spirit, using their natural harmonies to find the way out of life’s difficult puzzles. Producer T-Bone Burnett densely packs the mix with solid walls of guitar with the occasional accordion sneaking past.  “Waste A Lifetime,” “Wonder Wonder” and “Found a Reason” chase that familiar mid-western terrain ably farmed by Tom Petty with a touch of the raucous punk energy that always inspired (if never informed) the band’s traditional sound.

Customer Reviews

T-Bone Burnett Produced "Still" An Awesome Thing

Opening with the haunting "Pretty Ghost," BoDeans add an eclectic album to their catalog. "'Round Here Somewhere" is an autobiography of sorts for the band. "Willin'" is classic 'Deans music, along the lines of "Paradise." "Lucille" is bound to be a classic in concerts. Moving ahead to "Everyday," this should get radio airplay if the Clear Channels of the world get an open mind. Download the single and you'll see why ~ but why do that when you can get the whole set and enjoy "Breathe," "Hearing," and end with the outstanding "Arms." Some of the other songs I failed to mention stand well on their own. Bound to be a great addition to the BoDeans catalog and one of the best CDs of 2008!

Great record from a great band! Long Overdue!

Been hearing this record here in Boulder, CO on KBCO Round Here Somewhere, Everyday... Awesome!! Get this record!!!

Really like this CD. Nice mix, but Everyday, Breathe, and Arms are a cut above and great tracks. Been following the Bodeans since the mid-80's and have all their stuff. The harmony/chemistry between the two vocalists and guitarists really define this band's sound and set them apart. Have to rank this album in their top 3. A step up from Resolution which was good, but not up to their standards. Great band live. Catching them at SXSW in Austin tomorrow.
