Premiere + Tour Dates : The Booze : Kick Me Where It Hurts

And just when you thought their was nothing coming out of Atlanta except Big Boi and real housewives, The Booze slithers onto the scene and into our hearts. Marrying a motherlode of 60s R&B/Mod with a Stonesy switchblade swagger, the band has set asses a’shakin’ across the greater Big Peach since their inception in 2007,while tours with acts as disparate as Muddy Waters Jr. and OK Go have permitted them to hone a white hot live show.

The Booze has just put the finishing touches on their newest platter, At Maximum Volume, which is slated to drop February 22nd on hometown Underrated Recordings. MOKB is damn pleased to premiere the record’s lead single, Kick Me Where It Hurts, which feels like early Oasis melded with the Stones back when Keith Richards had his little habit. I have listened to Kick Me Where It Hurts no less than 50 times in the last 3 days, but just to make sure I wasn’t deluding myself, I kicked it over to my friend Kelly, who is an expert in these matters. Her rxn?

If you sent [this song] to me and said, “Hey Kelly, I found this gorgeous lost track off of Exile with Keef on lead vocals,” I would have absolutely taken your word for it. And been no less in love with the tune than I am right now. I’m sitting here amazed. The Booze, huh? Please tell me the whole album is like this…

So there you have it. Why would Kelly lie to you?

    Go Booze. Good stuff, gents.

    BUT ON A DIFFERENT NOTE, something has to be said about this comment:

    “And just when you thought their was nothing coming out of Atlanta except Big Boi and real housewives[…]”

    Apparently, all you do is sit in front of the computer, eat frozen pizzas and read press releases.

    Made this my Swell Tune of the day:
    Somewhere Mick and Keith are arguing over whether or not this is them.
