We're elated to announce that Topshelf Records has teamed up with Babe City Records to jointly reissue Boyscott's widely loved surf-pop debut, Goose Bumps.
◆ Listen to Goose Bumps on your platform of choice
◆ Pre-order the album on vinyl, CD, or cassette (*ships October 25, 2019*)
On Goose Bumps, Connecticut's Boyscott present ten upbeat tracks that forge together elements of surf rock and bedroom pop. Weaving the supple sounds of yore into the techniques of today, Boyscott's distinct bedroom-recorded bops betray the limitations of their modest studio situation with a sonic depth not commonly associated with lo-fi projects.
Originally released in 2015, Goose Bumps is getting its first vinyl pressing with a co-release by Topshelf Records and Babe City Records. Although it took a few years of rotating casts, various makeshift studio experiences, and over a hundred shows, Boyscott have clearly carved out their own place in the world, garnering millions of streams and selling out many DIY physical pressings in the process. Read below for tour dates, and enjoy the record!
