MP3 At 3PM: Bonedome
June 5, 2010
Hailing from Dallas, the nine-piece Bonedome brings a prog-rock sound to its debut album, Thinktankubator (Summer Break). Prior to Bonedome, singer/songwriter Allan Hayslip worked within the Dallas music scene and was an orchestral violinist and chorister as a schoolboy. All of that hard work and classical training is reflected in Bonedome’s musical stylings. “Steven,” the first single off Thinktankubator, is surprising, to say the least. Hayslip’s vocals are like those of a young Bowie, but the music has an appeal similar to the Hives. The overall effect is somewhat orchestral in scope with a lot of drive and a truly sublime guitar tone.
