Says Pitchfork on Austin group Voxtrot: ‘Their songs tend to rely more on successive alterations to near-melodies than full-on excursions into big, transcendent melodic moments. Yet while the band continually strives for hugeness on their debut long-player, they opt to force the issue through instrumental layering and sheer volume rather than re-tooling the songs at the base level’. And so it is. We just love their lo-fi sensibility and inherent taste for musical adventure.

Listen to the Voxtrot song, Mothers, Daughters, Sisters and Wives.
