“The Black Keys meet the Grateful Dead”

Psycho – The Stone Foxes by SidewaysMedia

Distorted vocals, commanding chords, a communal celebration of rollicking, raunchy rock ‘n’ roll, coupled with the brilliant repetition of “I’m everything she wants, but she don’t know.  She’s a psycho!” are a few of the many things to love about The Stone Foxes’ latest effort.  With bluesy undertones reminiscent of The Black Keys, there is a refreshing authenticity that shines through in an often-repetitive industry.  Although the Foxes’ influences of The Band, Led Zeppelin, and even Kings of Leon come through in a substantial way, the end result is a distinctive sound that is undoubtedly their own.  The style is energetic, a representation of diverse moods – from the head-banging, foot-stomping “Psycho,” with its sharp lyricism, to the uninhibited, psychedelic elements of “Serious People,” a track that could comfortably fit within the Grateful Dead’s expansive catalogue of hits.  It is evident that the band is no stranger to experimentation.  Cast aside your preconceived notions about garage bands.  This is unlike anything you have ever heard, and it’s downright awesome.
