Released in June 2003, Boris’ second studio album, When We Were Big, was recorded at Wavelab Studios in Tucson, AZ in only 7 days. This cd falls more into a roots rock vein than Mother Ditch, with driving drum & bass grooves, electric guitars and edgy lyrics on some songs. Unusual instruments, arrangements, and of course Boris’ unique take on life in the Southwest make this album a familiar itch that you’ll have to keep scratching.
“… Americana with a Southwestern bent and a railyard twist, what Howe Gelb might do some night among the saguaro with a hit of acid and a Neil Young bug up his ass.”
– Michael Henningsen, Alibi
“When We Were Big truly is an authentically earthy and unusual Americana album with good songs. More alt-country/western than alt-country, this offering is steeped in southwestern imagery. McCutcheon triggers all five senses as he ruminates on overripe plums, vegetable farms, cattle grids, green chile pie, and farmhands named Benito.”
– Northeast Performer
