Great bands come few and far between these days. This is a sad truth. Fortunately, Saddle Creek provides yet another antidote to combat the insipid wave of releases currently flooding the New Arrivals bin. This ace up our sleeve, Beep Beep's debut record Business Casual, will derail any preconceived ideas about the band or the label releasing it.

Business Casual is an orchestrated, danceable tantrum where music and listener mutually celebrate the unbuttoning of a tethered ID. The music is flamboyant and deviant. It takes you to a steamy, triple-canopy jungle filled with sounds of howling animals in heat, animals angered by passion, combating ambiguous lust with lyrical therapy and slithering, intertwining guitars. Stylistically, Beep Beep draws from the past, absorbing traditional art rock elements (XTC, Klaus Nomi, Wire, Kate Bush), while simultaneously exuding present and future genres. Each song is a symbiotic relationship between driving, angular rock and bold, effeminate textures. The lyrics stand alone as titillating prose, exploring themes of office culture as well as religious, environmental, and sexual deviance.

The record was engineered by AJ Mogis at Presto! Recording in Lincoln, NE and mixed by Andy LeMaster (Now It's Overhead) at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA. The combined effort showcases their ingenuity in sound recording.
