Seth Bogart is the second overall solo studio album written, recorded and performed by Hunx and His Punx vocalist Seth Bogart. It is the first studio album to be released under his name, as his previous solo record Hairdresser Blues was issued under his stage name Hunx.
Bogart nods at the trendiness of his genre change on "Eating Makeup," which was inspired by the TLC episode, where he enlists Kathleen Hanna to sing about her growing preoccupation with the titular subject. What begins as a lick or a curiosity turns into a full-blown obsession, and all of a sudden, you’re sprawled in the center of Sephora, covered in opened concealer. Eventually, Bogart concludes gleefully, "everybody’s eating makeup. It sounds like an appealing fantasy, though much of the album concerns how such fantasies can ultimately turn hollow. The tension between artifice and reality is what gives Seth Bogart most of its conceptual heft, but it obviously helps that the album is very fun to listen to. (The neon synth-pop of "Club With Me," which shines like a cocaine-dusted disco ball, is a highlight. Not all of the guest singers are as prominent as Kathleen Hanna, but they’re no less successful.

Seth Bogart is better known by fans of rip-roaring garage punk as Hunx, as in Hunx & His Punx, a group responsible for a bunch of killer singles and two albums in the 2010s. He also released a record as just Hunx, which was a touch more introspective than the Punx albums. One might think that by stepping out from behind the Hunx name and making an album as himself, Bogart may have made the final step into making mature, forthright singer/songwriter music. Wrong! Seth Bogart is even goofier, looser, and more fun than any record he made as Hunx
On his first solo album under his own name, the songwriting is just as sharp and hooky and the emotions sometimes just as plaintive, sad and angsty as on past projects. But this time Bogart hits upon the most fully realized pop idol version of himself by embracing the demented, neon-coloured camp aesthetic he's always loved.
Seth Bogart is the first album released by Hunx and His Punx vocalist Seth Bogart to be released under his own name. Seth Bogart Q&A. Featuring Tavi Gevinson.
Hunx and His Punx frontman Seth Bogart explodes in glorious Technicolor from the first notes of his self-titled album. The shiny opener Hollywood Squares is positively dripping with cheery Casio keyboards and poppy, distorted guitar. He rides similar soundwaves on Eating Makeup alongside a frenetic Kathleen Hanna, whose punchy delivery alternates with the driving chorus. The record burns bright and bizarre all the way through, with eclectic musical moves like cosmic banger Club With Me and swaying ’50s malt-shop popper Barely 21. Seth Bogart Seth Bogart.
