- "With Stars for Anyone, The Boneless Children Foundation has created a massive
- album that swerves and boogies with classic rock n' roll riffs and delightfully
- quirky and engaging lyrics. The songs overflow with ideas, while musical passages
- are juxtaposed in a way that suggests the giddiness of a band like Sparks.
- ...[David Siegel is] a reckless lead vocalist who shouts, croons, pleads,
- and sings over the carefully crafted music with such emotion that you can't help
- but listen to what he's trying to say."
- Jeff Bissell, Wiretap Music
- "Wildly near-psychedelic indie rock ... Cute and endearing ... Good energy ...
- People do like their cars."
- Hybrid Magazine
- "If you like fun, sloppy, sometimes kinda poignant-sounding power pop, look no
- further than San Franciscos The Boneless Children Foundation."
- Synthesis Magazine Blog
- "Stars for Anyone features extremely cool, unpredictable stream-of-consciousness
- rock with a difference. In the age of everyone-sounds-the-same and/or technology-
- drives-the-sound...the guys in The Boneless Children Foundation play refreshingly
- real artsy rock and roll. [...] Stars for Anyone is a refreshing reminder that
- there are some truly creative bands lurking underneath the surface."
- "Go, be rocked [by the Boneless Children Foundation]."
- Rudolph Delson, NEW YORK TIMES Paper Cuts 'Living With Music' Blog,
- Rudy is the author of the wonderful novel .
- Discussing our CD: "The leadoff title track is a sprawling
- garage-pop epic that comes out firing. Chaotic guitar and drum churn
- through the song's three minutes and twenty-two seconds, creating a
- perfect combination of noise and rock catchiness."
- - Jer, Three Imaginary Girls
- "Kind of like No Doubt before they sold 10,000,000 records and began to doubt their
- sound. No (thankfully) Gwen here, but perhaps a similar sense of controlled confusion
- and kinetic energy. A tight three-piece that I am sure deliver a great live show with
- much unpredictableness."
- (Additionally, "What a bunch of high school kids. ... [I]t's a sick name that means nothing."
- Freddy Jisp, Left Hip Magazine
- "A mix of poetry, punk, glam rock they know how to put on a good show."
- Una LaMarche, Black Book Online
- "Don't worry about sending money: These three guys have all the bones they
- need. They make a plenty-noisy punk-rock racket, tempered by humor and just
- the right touch of melody.
- Nate Seltenreich, The East Bay Express
- "The title track from Boneless Children Foundations brand new album Stars
- for Anyone is a wonderful slice of indie rock."
- The Bay Bridged
- "You'd listen to Boneless Children Foundation on big old headphones
- at an American laundromat in a cool inner-city neighbourhood, while
- wearing sneakers and op-shop clothes, dancing stupidly around the driers.
- It's that sort of ironic indie post-punk extravaganza, so it's fitting
- that they've been garnering buzz via college radio stations."
- Jennifer, We Heart Music Blog
- "... apt and off-kilter ... some very exciting music ... ."
- Pat Craig, The Contra Costa Times
- "... notoriously Dead Milkmen-esque ..."
- Hiya Swanhuyser, The SF Weekly
- "The Boneless Children Foundations new CD "Stars For Anyone" is a throwback
- to a time when humor in music mattered. BCF writes catchy lyrics, engaging
- melodies and if sex appeal were sound the whole bay area would be deaf."
- Paco Romane, of pacoromane.com and Free Dirt Media.
- "A poor man's Rush."
