English duo The Boy Least Likely To lovingly craft the pop-music equivalent of kindergarten holiday ornaments, scribbling with all 64 crayons at once– banjo, fiddle, glockenspiel, synths– outside the lines, in humbly taped-together packaging. Their magic is as individual as a six-year-old's clumsily scissored photo, and as vulnerable as an instantly past picture-day grin before the future's inexorable encroachment.
the best party ever will be released in the US in April 2006 on the boy least likely to's own too young to die records.
Pitchfork calls The Boy Least Likely To's debut album, the best party ever, 'a thing of wonder, made of rubber and springs' and the NME thinks, 'you'd need a brick in your heart cavity not to love 'em''.
The best party ever was voted number 8 in Rough Trade Shop's year-end top 100 following its UK release and was already the third highest selling album on Insound for 2005.
'The Boy Least Likely To, a two man pop group of unusual charm and literacy' -The Times (UK)
