THE BOXCAR SUITE
Cosmic American power pop for the Age of Aquarius...equal parts paisley, rhinestone and feather boa.
With Further In and Farther Out, the Boxcar Suite deliver their second full-length album, building on roots as a backing band for the release of frontman Tim Pritchard’s It Shall Be Revealed and the eclectic exploration of their debut, Across the Vast & Deep. FIAFO finds a fully formed rock and roll band enjoying the arrival of their realized sound. It holds true to the song-oriented approach common to Pritchard’s previous work, and generally indicative of admiration for writers such as Gram Parsons or Gene Clark, but turns sonic favor toward 70s stadium heroics and 90s power pop revivalism, embellished by steel guitar, keys, harmonized leadwork, and stacked vocal harmonies. Though more focused than previous efforts there are still apparent hints of country, folk and psychedelia.
