"Will Sheff and I always dug the way our voices blended together when we'd get to sing together a few times over the years," Booher says. "He is a close friend, and we are always turning each other onto new and different music. It made natural sense to me to ask him to sing some songs on this new record, and I'm so happy that he obliged."
Zaleski of Diffuser.fm says "The fanciful, dynamic tune is a rather perfect mix of dusky indie-folk and electropop...'Pick Up the Robot (Put The Robot Down)' feels like a gloriously ramshackle, life-affirming jam session." Of the debut album, she says, "The rest of Funny Tears
is equally impressive, diversity-wise: The horn-peppered, psych-tinted "Polar Research" resembles the Dandy Warhols, while the forceful jangly "Ouroboros
" is a dead ringer for Bright Eyes."
is currently available for pre-order on CD and LP via Old Flame
The album was produced by Mike McCarthy, best known for his work with Spoon, The Heartless Bastards, and ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.
BOOHER is Cully Symington (Cursive, Afghan Whigs) on drums, Mike St Clair (White Denim, Polyphonic Spree) on horns, synth and strings, Jeremy Gomez
(Mineral, The Gloria
Record) on bass. The band is fronted by Mike Booher, formerly of the band Zykos.
BOOHER will play SXSW 2017 and will announce additional tour dates later this year.
