BOAN's "MENTIRAS (HD030)" Will Make You Want to Fuck a Robot





BOAN's "MENTIRAS (HD030)" Will Make You Want to Fuck a Robot

Or maybe an android. Something machine wants to be inside you with BOAN's new record, that is all hard beats that softly fall on the sensibilities, taking the hard tech of the future and giving it emotional action. It's electronic music with that taint-gripping immediacy of stripped-down punk and, as the Bandcamp description of the record makes note, it was made entirely "using all hardware electronics to sequence and arrange infectious live dance music." That these guys have a specific vision and are capable of wreaking it upon the Texas electronic scene with such efficient skill is not much of a surprise, considering that creators Mariana Saldaña (vocals) and José Cota (beats) have been driving forces in big projects in the state for a while (SSLEEPERHOLD for José, //TENSE// for Mariana, both in Medio Mutante). The fact that these songs are heavily in Spanish is just another point where BOAN sticks out from the rest of the Texas electronic noise, where there's just so much good going on that it's hard to always keep up with it all. BOAN is one that is absolutely worth keeping up with, if any are, however, and this latest product is some shit that does the "future is now, and it's kinda messy" thing just spot on. An album that's perfect to watch Dark Star to, or maybe to wander around an abandoned and rusting computer factory from the 80s thinking about how the world all went so prettily wrong.
