ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"INSANELY AWESOME! Sidewalk Driver's 'For All The Boys & Girls' is an album that you listen to and if you do not end up in a more happy, joy induced state, you may need medication to pull you out of your funk. With choruses of handclaps, armies of singalong melodies and a band bonhomie that makes the band your new band best friends... After 4 listens the last few weeks, it has been added to my Top 10 list for the year... Strains of "Ziggy"-era Bowie, late 70s new wavey pop combine to a modern rock strain that fans of Locksley and The Killers anthemically float in and out this highly textured music. All of it infused with endelible melodies, warm harmonies and the production values that picky pop fans will appreciate."
- Bruce Brodeen, Not Lame (April, 2010)

"Sidewalk Driver's long-awaited debut LP perfectly channels their energetic live performances into a smartly crafted, deftly produced party platter. Bursting with flavors of glam rock and hook-filled pop that owe to the Cars, Elton John and the Pixies, there isn't a single skippable track on it."
- Selene Angier, The Metro - Boston (December 23, 2009)

"Four years is a VERY long time to have a band together and not have put out a CD (in recent times at least). And if you've witnessed Sidewalk Driver's live show (complete with costume changes, glitter, smoke machines, fake eyelashes and MORE) you've wanted to take some SD home with you. So it was with great anticipation and total dread that I approached listening to our press copy of their DEBUT CD, For All the Boys & Girls. Dread, because I was worried that this would not live up to the live renditions of the songs that I often find myself humming days after seeing a show. After a week of the new record being on repeat at HQ I can say that it is totally awesome. The songs, hooks, and performances are incredibly strong and this debut will make a big splash."
- Sophia Cacciola, Boston Band Crush (October 1, 2009)

"For All the Boys and Girls" album review
This band has been gracing the stages of Boston, Massachusetts clubs for over four years. Leaving a trail of glitter and confetti, this band has ripped its way through the Boston music scene... and directly into my heart. This bands unique blend of raucous energy and flamboyant grace translates every bit to this amazing 12 track masterpiece. "For All the Boys and Girls" doesn't just reflect the energy that this band has become known for. It literally transforms your home into a shrine of rock! It tears down the walls of convention and rains a shimmering haze of innovation right onto your living room floor... literally. If you like ice cream sundaes, beautiful summer afternoons, making out with hot boys/girls, cute puppies, and everything else that is awesome... YOU WILL LOVE THIS ALBUM!!! Buy it!
