“For some time, I’ve held these words from you.”

“Slow Motion” by Phox | I have, yes, noticed that something happened in Austin the past couple of weeks. I have, also, the tendency to sleep on these things until they really perk my ears up. So I was listening to a radio recording from Austin and I heard Phox in session. They’re a six-piece from Baraboo, Wisconsin, and their music’s a bit jubilant and a bit melancholic and, since you’re talking to me, all about the enigmatic, maybe boozy voice of Monica Martin. That makes everything in my book. There’s something playful yet reserved about the band’s whole sound, and apparently they do a really good live show too – good of the feels kind, as much as I hate that term – which explains why the spotlight was on them during SXSW. The band released an EP, Confetti, last year, and have gone around the live circuit since, appearing in the iTunes Festival in London, that sort. So yes, I am late to the game, but why not? [NB]
