Combining indie rock with the brisk fervency of merengue, the swing of son with the thump of funk and the memorable melodies of pop with the twist and turns of prog rock, New York City’s Boom Box Repair Kit is claiming musical territory all their own. They borrow from traditional Spanish Caribbean music in much the same way the Bad Brains borrow from Reggae, the Red Hot Chili Peppers borrow from funk and Gogol Bordello borrow from Balkan folk music. While some say they’re defining a new breed of indie rock, others feel that they simply stand out among the rock masses as a band in which no genre aptly captures their sound, nor do they fit within any particular scene or fan base.
