‘All Out’ by The Boston Shakers is janky, groovy classic rock with a party-oriented, rap-influenced vocal approach. The band describes itself as, “a modern mash-up of Beastie Boys’ ‘(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)’, ANDREW W.K.’s ‘We Want Fun’, and Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In the Name.’” There’s some quality guitar work here which is enhanced by a progressive, untethered production style. This results in an underhandedly unique tone and aesthetic. On top of that, the other compositional element that really stands are the pop- and rap-influenced interludes. These do a great job of breaking up an otherwise straightforward tune. Over everything, a diverse yet surprisingly well-executed vocal approach fuses all the group’s different influences together in a clear way. These guys are really on to something.
