Foxing are a five-piece band that formed in 2011 from Saint Louis, Missouri. What's their genre? It's somewhere between a blend of emo/indie/post-rock/math rock/electronic music, as if that narrows anything down. Alright, think of a band influenced by the likes of Explosions In The Sky, This Town Needs Guns, Listener, The Antlers, Tera Melos, Maps & Atlases, Death Cab For Cutie, Brand New, and A Silver Mt. Zion (and their 1000 names). Now imagine that said band came from the same music scene that spawned The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Crash of Rhinos, and Prawn. And what do you have? Foxing.

This band utilizes a range of instruments in addition to the basic guitar, bass, drums setup. A trumpet is prominently used, as well as various string arrangements, and electronic tinkering, among others. Their guitars are very clean, often laden with delay and reverb. The drums focus more on forming rhythms than keeping basic beats. The vocals are varied, often ranging from spoken word parts to cracking shouts and sputters of intense emotion ("Why don't you love me back?"). The lyrical relatability and poeticism is painstaking, to say the least. The band crafts songs featuring endless crescendos, cathartic climaxes, and eventual breaking points, the formula of post-rock, but structure their songs to remain unpredictable and adventurous, which sets them apart from the predictably that plagues the genre. The Albatross in particular is an amazing piece of work that I highly, highly recommend everybody check out in its entirety. It has got to be one of the most solid albums put out in this realm of music in years, in my opinion.

Foxing released their debut full-length on Count Your Lucky Stars, and were quite quickly signed to Triple Crown Records, for good reason. Below is the aforementioned full-length and their earlier material. Be sure to support the band, and they are a must-see live band if you have the chance. Enjoy.

  1. Awesome band, great upload. Thanks! Is this Albatross the CYLS version or the remix/remaster from Triple Crown?

  2. I don't think you can understand how much I love this blog. I was literally (like less than a minute ago) on 4shared to download some music, typed in "Foxing," got disappointed, then remembered that I haven't checked this site in a couple of weeks. What's the first fucking thing I see? Foxing. Never ever ever stop doin' you.

      Hey man these guys are super talented and super creative. If you don't like them then don't listen. But there's no reason to leave rude comments
