Once you become familiar with Boris' songs and his sandpapered-velvet voice you will be spoiled! These days "Americana" is a serious trend with lots of people jumping on the wagon. Just one listen and you know that Boris is the real deal.
He has a delicious way of describing experiences from the everyday to the bizarre that make you take notice: "tiny hairs on tiny flowers, every inch of the earth is alive, take a dive"! Now get a look through Boris' eyes — hike down dusty trails and befriend the colorful characters that live in his songs.
The final installment in Boris' off the grid trilogy, Might Crash! follows up Wheel of Life and Bad Road, Good People, in a musical ode to the romance and reality of northern New Mexico. This album has all the trademarks of the incomparable Salt Licks sound, which seems to come right from the land itself. A soulful new set of Boris songs, full of alt.country, blues and a dose of eerie high desert lonesomeness.

Boris' new album is a little bit dirty and a little bit countrified. A companion CD to 2008's Bad Road, Good People, it contains the smart rollicking song by the same name. Check out "Mullein People" and "California" – destined for Americana charts. Vintage Boris poetry and classic music on this mostly western roots gem.
This cd falls into a roots rock vein with driving drum & bass grooves, electric guitars and edgy lyrics on some songs. Unusual instruments, arrangements, and of course Boris' unique take on life in the Southwest make this album a familiar itch that you'll have to keep scratching.

No, it's not for kids! The concept for the cover and illustrations came from a dream Boris had about… well… battling a blue demon. Colorful cover aside, the songs range from quirky to serious to sublime. This is an album filled with surprises that continue to reward on each new listen.
