Boddicker's Big Lionhearted and the Gallant Man

When Caleb Boddicker comes hissing across dusty cables on his proper, full-length debut Big Lionhearted and the Gallant Man (Banter), the lo-fi flight he whisks his listeners away on will certainly recall a handful of artists who busted down the bedroom recording doors and fled for the national spotlight. Conor Oberst, Sam Beam, and Jeff Mangum…their effect on the twenty year old songwriter under the covers of songs like “Traveling” and “Interstate 55” sounds immeasurable. But Boddicker is wise to a wide range of musical luminaries, and you can hear it on Big Lionhearted. Louder and clumsier than most, Boddicker wonders what Tom Waits the pimple-faced teen might have sounded like on “Samuel Clemens’ Grandpa”…for all of forty six seconds. Boddicker echoes both Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock on “Pretty Baby” and “That Which I or Albright’s Door”. And “The Greatest Thing” sounds like the most stripped down Built to Spill song you have ever heard. Pulling the whole collection together is Brian Deck – producer extraordinaire for many of the aforementioned acts. – David Pitz
