"The New York-area duo Boy/Girl is a guitar/drums outfit that's all about contradictions--they're straightforward but spazzy, messy but stripped-down."

"4casey4music - Listening Room"

"It seems the indie rock Friday we've been trying to keep afloat lives to see another week...and in a big big way. Today's featured duo are an incredible exercise in both reckless noise rock and minimal needs where bells and whistles are concerned. Plenty of you might make an obvious initial comparison to a certain Jon Spencer project (minus the cheesy ego), just as I first did. That might be a result of them using the same Manhattan practice basement many of Spencer's previous bands and related artists inhabited at one time or another. That likeness quickly faded as the vocals kicked me in the stomach." -


"The straddling-the-line-between-lo-and-no-fi fuzzed-out blues-inspired duo-rock of Boy/Girl interprets what the JSBX would have been like on downers." -

"Blowup Radio Concert Pick"

"Boy/Girl add a jolt of refreshingly off-kilter No Wave spazzosity" - (

"Pashtastic (LIVE REVIEW)"

"You really need to see themin person to see how incredibly they improvise together, and how technical and artistic their instrumentation is." -

"City Belt - Day Job"

"I often find two-pieces lacking in a fullness of sound. Of course, sometimes this works to a band's advantage, if it fits the music well. Such is the case with boy/girl, made up of Brooklyn's Eric Stiner (boy) and Jersey City's Lisa Cusack (girl). The word "spazz" or "spazzy" seems to get thrown around a lot when talking about them, but I don't really get full-on "spazzocity" or "spazzmasms" from them -- instead I feel dysfunction, but in a good way. So there you have it: dysfunction rock." -

Boy-girl plays a creeped out brand of rock with frenetic highs, unsettling lows, and strange sexual undertones. The male/female duo was formed on the dirty streets of Jersey City. The story begins in 2003 after Lisa moved to NYC from Oslo, Norway to study liquid-liquid extractions at Columbia University. Over time she became overwrought with contempt for the university and its ivory tower atmosphere. It was then that she decided to get out of Dodge and move with a friend to an abandoned building across the Hudson River in Jersey City. Eric had moved into the same building two months prior to Lisas arrival. He explains his arrival at this place was primarily due to circumstances involving a lady and other events beyond his control. They met in February of 2005 and made a pact to start playing music together after Eric's return from an extended hunting trip for the American Museum of Natural History in India. That summer Lisa secured a rehearsal space in a storage warehouse owned and operated by a funny little Italian gentleman. Eric returned that fall after spending a quarantined month in Dubai fighting Dengue Fever. That October the duo immediately started writing and recording their current LP which will be released this Fall.
