Road to the 2007 NYC Popfest: Ballboy


Ballboy are three guys and one gal from Edinburgh, Scotland and they play songs that are pop songs. The band's mostly mopey jangle brings to mind names like Belle and Sebastian, and at times, The Go-Betweens. They signed to SL records back in 1999 and ended up releasing three great EPs. Three years later they released Club Anthems 2001, a compilation gathering up their first three EPs. If you liek what you hear below and are looking for a good place to start, I would definitely recommend picking up Club Anthems 2001. Ballboy will be playing the 8PM show on May 26th with Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, Harvey Williams, The Besties, and more!
