Pitchfork recently ran a huge article detailing what the band Voxtrot has been up to over the past few months. Read the whole thing here, but in short, the band will be releasing their debut LP worldwide on May 22 via Playlouder.
Despite this being a debut, the band is no stranger to internet-savvy music fans. 2005/2006 saw the release of three self-released EPs that were pretty much everywhere in the blogging world. Raised by Wolves was released in late 2005 and introduced the band’s highly contagious songs. Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, & Wives dropped the following spring and expanded the band’s sound with a fuller production and edgier guitars. The title track was one of the year’s best rock tunes, driving, propulsive, and hyper-melodic. It appears below for you to check out. Finally, Your Biggest Fan followed just 6 months later to lesser fanfare, as it contained only 3 new songs.
2007 will see if the band can run with the hype the internet has afforded them over the past 15 or so months. After reading singer Ramesh Srivastava’s enthusiastic interview at Pitchfork we can’t wait to hear the results.
