Big Hits! is the first full-length album released by the Austin, TX-based the Boxing Lesson in about five years. And sonically, the material on the album is much more rock orientated than their previous efforts. They employ the use of synthesizers throughout but in a way that would be closer to prog rock, than New Wave or anything else. “Better Daze” is the first single off the new album, and the song manages to combine angular guitars, stomping drums and a rather melodic sensibility to a song that feels quite anthemic.
The official video is a visual delight as it has strange creatures coming out from the shadows to haunt and torture humans. But they manage to disappear when the sun comes up.
