Evan Ramirez The album title says it all.
Splendid collection of upbeat tunes, this is! Puts you in such a posi mood. This is great party-pop that doesn't assault you with noise, instead leaves countless great, catchy hooks with you! Favorite track: Dayglow (Why Can't We Stay).

Jon Douglas I have to admit that I enjoyed Boxed Wine's EP a bit more, but those same reasons are "Cheap, Fun" is a better album. "Cheap, Fun" revisits the same great stuff we got in the EP but they've really cleaned up their sound (I personally liked the little bit of garage-ness that came through) and the lyrics are still fun and interesting like before. Favorite track: Danger Eyes.

about

This is the debut LP from our band, Boxed Wine. We made it just for you.

It's called 'Cheap, Fun' (say it with the comma, please) and we want you have it for as little as possible.

This is because you'll steal it anyway and we're realists. If you're going to get it one way or another, you might as well have the best version.

It's PAY WHAT YOU WANT because we're optimistic and think you're charitable. (Also, handsome/beautiful.) Maybe you'll think it's worth throwing a few bucks our way, literally so we can keep making more music and videos for you.

We call it 'indie party pop,' but you can label it however you want.

You should compare it to other relevant musical acts you like, "totes" put your "fave tunes" in a "play-list," then come see us play and dance your rumps off. All we wanna do is make your day better by getting incessantly stuck in your head.

You should also Like our Facebook page so you stay up to date on our shows and other stuff. Social media is everything nowadays.

Ok, bye for now...
