Title Surfing Strange
Sticking to their DIY guns, the band holed up in their new hometown of Philadelphia and recorded, mixed and mastered this album themselves. The album shows an impressive development and broadening of their sound away from the more pop punk edged indie rock that defined their debut, although there are still some punky nuggets along the way.

Originally released in North America by Salinas Records during the second half of 2012, this is the first proper release of the album in Europe.
Swearin’ is fronted by Allison Crutchfield, sister of Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield. The twin sisters were previously both in the band PS Eliot together.
Swearin’ also features Keith Spencer (the Waxahatchee drummer) playing bass.
The vinyl format of this Wichita edition is pressed onto 180g vinyl, and also includes a CD copy of the full album.
Title Boombox Ballads
Label Moshi Moshi
“I’m a lovely little man”, sings Stephen Black who, as Sweet Baboo, has written and performed songs of sweet sentiment and charming melody since 2003 but never with such accomplishment as on The Boombox Ballads. Black isn’t celebrating his own loveliness, however. I Just Want To Be Good is by fellow Welsh singer Cate Le Bon, a close friend for whom Black plays bass, and she wrote the song about him. It’s the only cover on an album of otherwise personal love songs that combine kitchen sink detail with universal appeal, and it shows a new side to Sweet Baboo: as the Harry Nilsson of Snowdonia, a gifted songwriter not above lending his dulcet tones to the words of others.
On The Boombox Ballads, Sweet Baboo wanted to explore more what it was to be a singer as opposed to a ‘singer / songwriter’, a term that to him at least seems to have picked up negative connotations. There was a tentative channeling of latter day Scott Walker (You Got Me Time Keeping) in both songwriting and working with an arranger, Paul Jones, for the first time, with Jones helping him paint the most vivid accompaniments possible. This process leaves Sweet Baboo with nothing but his voice to guide him to the emotional centre of the song.
Originally, Black wanted to make The Boombox Ballads on his own, but then reality set in. Recorded in a Cardiff studio with producer Charlie Francis, and a whole host of musicians including: Avvon Chambers and Daniel Ward on drums; Rob Jones and Huw Evans on bass; a string quartet; arranger Paul Jones; guest singers Zervas & Pepper on Got To Hang Onto You; and Laura Byron of Tender Prey on You Got Me Time Keeping, the result is a vibrant, endearing pop classic

Sweet Baboo’s Stephen Black starred in the new Gruff Rhys play ‘The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion’ this Christmas in Cardiff.
