Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It's refreshing to find a band that's not terribly worried about being the next big thing. Over the five years of their existence, Voxtrot have released fewer than twenty songs spread across two hard to find 7-inch singles and three EPs. And it's on the strength of those literate, memorable songs, plus a series of increasingly tight and vibrant live shows, that they've built a devoted and passionate following. The twelve songs on this record are a powerful statement of intent: louder, harder, a little more complex, a more confident Voxtrot. "...a Texas band who could nudge the heights of soulful UK indie poppers like Aztec Camera and the Beautiful South" - Spin. "Voxtrot write whip-smart pop rock" - Pitchfork.

Amazon.com

On their first full length, these Anglophile Texans jettison the overt Belle & Sebastian/ Aztec Camera influences of their justly-lauded early singles and EPs for a slightly harder and more diverse sound. The songs range from pretty, poignant, and piano-driven numbers like "Ghost" and "Steven" to more manic and guitar-heavy songs such as "Kid Gloves" and "Brothers in Conflict." There's an undeniable, infectious energy at work here which is put to great use with the self-deprecating humor and immense pop chops. It'd be ridiculous to say you've never heard music like this before, even if you're a newbie to British (or British-sounding) indie-pop from the last 25 years. When Ramesh Srivastava knowingly, passionately sings "I have to lose my idols to find my voice" on "Brothers," you have to agree that the kid's on the right track. Fans of Ted Leo, the Wedding Present, and Clap Your Hands will find much to enjoy here. --Mike McGonigal

These guys are amazing. I just picked this up based on a friend's recommendation and holy wow. By strategically avoiding all the pitfalls of what a first album can fall into, they do it masterfully. They also avoid the trends quite well, but delving into a very honed power pop rock sound that elevates your energy no matter what kind of mood you're in. However I get sad listening to it, because so much of the lyrics apply to situations going on in my life. But that's the reason I love it. It emotes me. It makes me feel the same thing. They're doing it with a meloncholy grace that in my opinion rivals the best Interpol song. They hail from Austin, Texas where if you don't know so many great and unique groups have come out of, here's a small list in case you're curious....

American Analog Set

At the Drive In

I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness

Explosions in the Sky

Spoon

Bedhead

The Black Angels

Murder City Devils

This is one of those albums that you will get through from start to finish and not skip a single track. It's unbelievably how perfected their sound is, that they've been working on it for a while and finally found where they belong on the soundscope. Get this if you enjoy Superdrag, Nada Surf or some of the best early nineties Brit Rock. Also I tend to never review anything that's less than five stars so if you read my reviews, you'll know this one's a winner.

Fantastic indie pop. Some of the songs are instantly catching (like Firecracker, which I played almost non-stop for a day), and all the others without exception get better and better. Thoroughly recommended.

This has the ability to go mainstream, but hopefully it won't. For their first full-length album (released on the same record label that brings us the outstanding 'The National') Voxtrot doesn't disappoint. Hailing from Austin, they bring simple beautiful melodies, vocals, and (some) piano. A sound that might be compared to the likes of Death Cab, if thats your bag.

Notable tracks: Firecracker, Ghost, and Introduction

I've been listening to this band for at least 7 or 8 years and they have never failed me. No matter what mood I'm in, there's always a Voxtrot song to get me through the day. Ramesh Srivastava's lyrics are beautifully poetic and kind of remind of the Shins in that I am always having to decipher what he's trying to convey with each song. Not to mention, the songs tend to be quite different in that some are very mellow indie pop and others are more indie rock and then they add some mad piano playing skills in there and it's just so much fun to listen to. I go from trying to keep up with Ramesh singing (like in 'Ghost' or 'Brothers in Conflict') to not being able to speak because the song is just so beautiful and empowering (like 'Sway'). This is literally my first comment on Amazon and this band is the most deserving of it. It's a shame they're no longer together, but their songs will be played through out my entire life. It's just crazy how much music can affect you.
