has an EP entitled This Distance
which was released earlier this month. They opened for Peter, Bjorn and John and have just announced another date with them in late September. Who is Oax though? Oax is the musical project of Giorgio Angelini. Angelini used to play with Bishop Allen and the Rosebuds but then needed some time off from music. He lost his collaborative partner to Okkervil River. He moved back home to Houston. He also went through a bad break-up. All of these hardships pushed Angelini to return to what he knows best and record one heavy EP.
Check out his latest MP3, "Liar, Cheat, Jerk", for some lonely melodies, powerful guitars, and confessional lyrics. You can also stream This Distance
on Oax's SoundCloud.
