Voxtrot - Raised By Wolves

artist: Voxtrot
album: Raised By Wolves EP
genre: alt/indie rock
year: 2005
country: usa

you know its not often enough that i go through all the music on my over cluttered hard drive and give what was once forgotten an honest listen. and, after a few spins, i think its time to share. lyrical stylings that are reminiscent of early belle & sebastion and jangly 60's guitar pop, with some modern day "get up and move" beats. this is probably the only way i'm able to describe voxtrot, a band that people first took notice of around '06 when it seemed that every other week another band or song about wolves would be the latest thing to talk about. raised by wolves is a five song ep that gives a pretty good insight of things to come from the band early on. while i can't say that the band has entirly lived up to everything it built up from this ep (i wanted a bit more from their first lp), they will always have a place in my heart and on my hard drive.
this isn't to say that what they have done since is a complete letdown. quite the opposite. i'm just waiting for the full album that really shows off the band's full potential.
