Two weeks ago psych blues monsters and lower Manhattan heroes Endless Boogie released Focus Level, their first album. They've been playing together for eleven years. Their decision to finally record the album only came after they were invited to leave the island and play in the UK for All Tomorrow's Parties. If mentions of "Rare Book Room," "Andy Maclead" and "Matt Sweeney" in the liner notes aren't enough to indicate that Endless Boogie is a true New York thing, consider this: we bought our copy of Focus Level at Amoeba in Los Angeles, where there was one copy in the Misc. E section.
