Sabrina’s Secret Stash on Ottawa’s electro-pop duo, Boycrusher. Their only album, “Sometimes a Man…” was independently released in 2006.
“boycrusher produces shiny electropop nuggets for mind and body; ingest, and move, and ponder. The debut album, “sometimes a man…”, ensnares the dance floor in the headlights of self-reflection and managed unravelling.
boycrusher is a product of 80’s pop radio, synthesizing the best elements of New Order, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Gary Neumann, and Michael Jackson. “sometimes a man…” is built using a blend of the same original 80’s gear and sentiment. The album features guests performances by Leanda (co-hostess of About the Music on CIUT FM), Philip Shaw Bova, and Jordy Walker.
boycrusher is the creation of Michael Schultz [Hilotrons, Wax Mannequin] and Michael John Dubué[Hilotrons, Empiricals, Kepler], both active players on the Ottawa music scene. The collaboration was born after a short series of informal and largely improvised gigs arranged in 2004 by Dubué. The original lineup also included Philip Shaw Bova [Hilotrons, Empiricals] Paul Hogan [Hilotrons, Empiricals], Andrew McCormack [Clark, Woodenstars], Jeremy Gara [Kepler, Arcade Fire] and Jordy Walker. Inspired by the success of those gigs, Schultz and Dubué went on to write and record “sometimes a man…”. ”
We played, “Take A Chance”, “Cigarette Boat,” “Dance the Night Away,” “President of Your Heart,” and “Video Queen”
I highly recommend, Boyrcrusher’s debut, “Sometimes A Man…” In hopes that Boycrusher will release some new material in the near future!
