Published Mar 06, 2012Having made their mark on the East Coast music scene with 2010's Would You Please, the PEI-based Boxer the Horse are returning with album No. 2. Entitled French Residency, the record is due out on March 13, but until then, you can stream the entire album here on Exclaim.ca.
The ten-song album finds the band refining their indie rock sound, drawing more influence from '80s alt-rock groups and '90s lo-fi. To help craft that sound, the group enlisted Alec O'Hanley (a former member of Two Hours Traffic and current member of the Danks) to produce.
In addition to the new record, Boxer the Horse will be teaming up with Said the Whale for a number of dates in Canada's eastern half this spring. See the schedule over at their official site.
Listen to French Residency below. If you like what you hear, pre-order it from Bandcamp and get a B-side called "Two Times Is Never Enough."
