The Boxing Lesson

boxing-lesson

The Boxing Lesson is a rock band from Austin, TX. A power trio with synthesizers performing the bass player’s role, they create a mammoth psychedelic ‘wall of sound’ that begins minimally and builds into grand orchestrations. Vocalist and guitarist Paul Waclawsky, synthesizer player Jaylinn Davidson combine strong songwriting with desert rock, guitar freak-outs, soul space jams and plenty of Texas rock ’n’ roll thunder.

Big Hits! is the first full-length album released by The Boxing Lesson in five years. It is not a concept album nor does it have political overtones, although it may offer solutions to some personal troubles. It’s more rock-oriented than The Boxing Lesson’s past albums. It is produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith at The Bubble in Austin, TX, and contains a total of 11 songs. Big Hits! is not a jam-band album. Most tracks are under 4 minutes in length. There are lengthy guitar solos for cosmic relevance, but only in 3 songs. Synthesizers were used extensively but it’s neither new-age nor electronica music. Big Hits! is definitely psychedelic but not in a throw-back 60′s way. It’s recommended to listen to the songs in order, but if shuffled there will be no negative consequences. Multiple listens produce higher levels of understanding.
