Blvd Discography of CDs
||View Of The Park CD (2007) |
Blvd albums BLVD is Denver's most over-educated band. The four members of BLVD (the abbreviation for "boulevard," a wide, tree-lined street) put their five masters degrees together to construct cerebral, textured rock that layers poetic lyrics over intensely rhythmic music. BLVD draws upon numerous influences, including Pink Floyd, Genesis, Talking Heads, and the omni-present, inescapable Duran Duran. The result is a fresh take on the modern progressive rock scene.

While Backbone doesn't employ the obvious pop moves that guarantee mainstream crossover success (sampling classic pop tunes, employing catchy, melodic choruses), he's more than just another in-your-face rapper, and his music is certainly not without hooks. In the tradition of dub reggae (though that style isn't specifically referenced here), Backbone fashions his hooks by manipulating the atmospheric and rhythmic elements of a track, creating subtly repetitive motifs that insinuate themselves into the listener's brain.
Just to mix things up, a layer of sonic haze is spread across the tracks, employing everything from fuzzy guitar to moody synths in the service of keeping you on your toes. Lyrically, Backbone approaches many of the subjects gangsta rap fans will recognize, but his rhyming style is low-key enough to keep him from sounding too thuggish--such tracks as "Hit and Run" find him considering the conflict between street reality and moral imperatives with real thoughtfulness.
