2008 Rewind: A for "Attraction"

Riverboat Crime.

“Attraction.” If any local song was deserving of mass radio play, it was this one by North Little Rock’s Riverboat Crime. Built around a bright, rhythmic guitar hook, the song shifts between Big Dumb Pop (“if you make me crazy, I’ll drive you wild”) and Springsteen-ian moments (“all night we’ve been playing lookaway games”). Lead singer Josh Stoffer holds everything together with a voice so big and baldly full of feeling he almost sounds like he’s from another era. Like maybe one where bands like Squeeze and XTC reigned supreme. Hear it on Riverboat Crime’s debut “Walking Shoes.”
