Boss Hog – Brood X: News Feature / Reviews

“Brood X feels less like the work of a group who’ve been on ice for so long, more a slithering and sludgy monster of an album, a boiling pot of hot funk keys, growling punk attack, searing blues breaks and the ground-shaking holler of Martinez.”

“Brood X è un disco vizioso, trasgressivo, anticonformista e pregno di quella sessualità selvaggia che solo poche altre band sono riuscite ad eguagliare, figuriamoci superare…” – rocklab.it

“The New York blues-punks return with their first new album in nearly two decades—a powerful showcase for singer Cristina Martinez and the fiery, apocalyptic buzz in her wake.”

“…while the lock-step battery of bassist Jens Jurgensen and drummer Hollis Queens effortlessly alternate between a galloping death-disco and a gut-punching thrust. And then Finn’s ray-gunned keys thread it all together like a B-52’s channeling Richard Kern instead of Ed Wood.” – Pitchfork

““This is an emergency!” howls Martinez on Elevators, a panic-pumped anthem that sounds like Parliament’s polymorphic party music fed through the Bomb Squad’s sound system. She’s not wrong. But don’t worry – Boss Hog have what you need. They always have. So you’d better be thankful they’ve awoken again.

The aim of Boss Hog, however, remains the same: to have fun, and to make noise. And they’ve never sounded so great…” – The Breakfast Spread, PBSFM
