Cool music for a bg dumb world
"The songs are a laundry list of local and national maladies, often depicted with a dark sense of humor. And, as often as not, the music is as playful as the words. All in all, a reflection of inane pop culture, where one no longer condemns the plastic world around us but instead videotapes it for later when there's nothing else on." –Ted Johnson, LAX Magazine
Guitar-slingin' journalist Mike Starling started the Bean Hoy project as an outlet for his wry, topical tunes about subjects like road construction, farmer tans and the joys of beater cars and Wisconsin winters. To celebrate the silver anniversary of the release of Bean Hoy's award-winning debut album, Starling is at work in the studio now with Grammy-winning engineer Brett Huus on newly remastered 25th anniversary collection. The new compilation will include 12 of the band's most popular songs, and is scheduled for a December 2018 release on Momentous Records.


In production now, coming soon!
