Baby Ray
Monkeypuzzle (Thirsty Ear)

By: Geoff Melton

With a sound strongly reminiscent of the twisted, yet highly infectious, melodicism of XTC, Boston's Baby Ray have a real winner in their debut full- lengther Monkeypuzzle. Instead of the traditional verse-chorus-verse, this diverse set of tunes twist and turn through tight, angular rhythms that continue to hit you from left field cut after cut while simultaneously drawing you in with incredible hooks that just don't quit. The band says they're "pop gone wrong", and while that's a point well taken it also proves that sometimes it's right to be wrong.
