Over the last 8 month, I have been listening to a lot of music on various platforms, such as Soundcloud, Dropbox, Bandcamp, ReverbNation and others. As I was on ReverbNation, I came across Boetto, so I started to listen to Boetto, they are a Rock/Hard Rock/Punk band from La Quinta, CA in the USA, so I thought “OK, lets have a listen”.
When I started to listen to Boetto, it occurred to me (from first impressions) that this band is pretty decent, if you like the 80’s rock and hard rock from that era you would love this band, as they have encapsulated the sound of that time.
I have listened to Voices In My Brain a good few times now and it is one of favourite tracks by Boetto, it has got that something, it has some really good riffing and shredding, from the outset to the end of the track. Never Go Back has the similar feel to Voices In My Brain with some really good shredding, drumming and singing on this track.
Songs Never Written is one of those tracks that you need a good few listens to, to appreciate it, as it has that softness to it and it is a perfect chill out song. Green Trees is similar to Songs Never Written, plus I can hear a little bit of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers on this track.
Scarecrow is a really good track, as the bass guitar and drums that drive the song along with some sweet shredding on the guitar. What If Never Come is a decent enough song at the beginning it reminds me of (in the same vein) Alice Cooper’s Welcome To My Nightmare, but then it switches up a gear and it has impressed me enough with the guitar solos to put it on my playlist.
Lenny is in the vein of Soundgarden, Faith No More and RHCP of the late 80’s and early 90’s, as it has that similar type of beat to it and it has that bluesy style as well. Island Of Love has that acoustic feel to it, which goes throughout this track and for the fans, it has that Southern Rock tempo to it, which makes this track brilliant.
Man in the Desert, I don’t know what it is about this track that makes me want to dance, I don’t know if its the drums, the dirty sounding guitars or the guitars that have the Southern Rock element to them or combination of all them, but whatever it is it bloody awesome.
Mr. Row, this is a lot darker in the material and musically as it is about Halloween, if you like songs like this, this will be right up your street. It has that slow pounding of the drums and bass, and there is some sweet riffs from start to finish. Hallucinogenic Toadstool follows on from Mr. Row, as both songs got that Doom Rock feel to them, which a lot of fans of the genre should check out these songs.
Black Car Betty is one of those songs that will get thinking “Did he just say that” whilst dancing, as this has an upbeat feel to the overall track.
Well, I have listened to Boetto’s music for a while now, and I can say that, what they have created is really good music, so I would highly recommend you to go check the out on ReverbNation, click here for their page.
I would give them a 4 out of 5 for good music, it might not be my style of rock music but they are still good and I can see where they are coming from.
