They calmed down their sound drastically, and started whining a lot. It almost sounds like they started listening to someone else tell them what to sound like. This album doesn't quite bring the same boppin punch that And Girls Club did, and turning it down a notch to a mellower folky side seems to be what they were trying to do. However, overall this album rocks, and there are definitely still some awesome extremely catchy tracks with that special sound that will make you want to jump through the roof.

Okay, fine, I'll admit it: I kind of have a crush on Austin, Texas garage rockers The Strange Boys. All of 'em, even the gal with the blonde afro who plays the sax, Jenna Thornhill-deWitt. Following 2008's breakout debut, The Strange Boys and Girls Club, the youngish slacker rockers found a solid niche market in the U.S. and, unpredictably, a solid fan base in the U.K. No bother, they went back into the studio and, ignoring the hype and pressures that surround a sophomore record, recorded Be Brave, an equally good - if much different - record.

Be Brave opens with "I See," an instantly enjoyable twanger that sees frontman Ryan Sambol singing - in slurred verse - some surprisingly well written words of passive poetry, adding a harp-driven pseudo-power-hook to the track's already very accessible accompaniment. It's a great opener that sees these Boys peeling away some of the fuzzy grit in favor of a stound akin to pre-Aftermath Rolling Stones.

From there Be Brave is a solid garage rock ride, filled with incomprehensible vocals (many of which seem to deal with political themes), jangle guitars, bratty vibes and bouncy rhythms. The title track, for sure, is an instant standout, sounding like some lost Nuggets-era pop single. Mixing elements of country, R&B and punk into their sound on Be Brave, presenting a fluid and lean 12-song record that, despite the band's limited palate, never drags or bores, instead feeling like a singles collection for slackers.

Modestly produced by Sambol himself, the Boys have a different line-up on this record, one that features some very well-thought-of members of the ongoing garage rock revival. For starters, original drummer (and founding member) Matt Hammer has been replaced by Seth Densham (formerly of Mika Miko).

Strange Boys are great. This album didn't disappoint at all. It sounds a little more mature than their previous album. Really Good Music.
