Baeble First Play: The Baroque Eccentricity Of Foxtails Brigade
    • FRIDAY, APRIL 08, 2016

    • Posted by: Don Saas



    There are few things that get our engines revving more than some good old, fashioned baroque pop. Feist, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver. There's just something about a string section and enveloping, atmospheric production that just makes us happy at an instinctual level. And with their fusion of baroque pop, eclectic rock, and and hints of classical flourishes, San Franciso pop-rockers Foxtails Brigade are making us very happy today indeed.

    Foxtails Brigade's have just released their new, self-titled album, and it propels itself forward on the airy but piercing voice of Lauren Weinbach, soaring almost vaudeville-esque strings, and a sound that combines Sondheim-esque theatrics with contemporary pop intimacy. And on tracks like "Long Route," there's an unexpected heaviness that recalls a baroque pop spin on something like Metallica's "Battery."

    From opening track "Perfect Execution" to closing tracks like "Far Away and Long Ago" and "Last of a Dying Breed," Foxtails Brigade find a turbulent emotional throughline in their lyrics and sonic atmosphere. And if you're looking for something a little different to lead you into the weekend, Foxtails Brigade will more than get the job done.
