FREE EP: Phox

Phox
Today's free download is from a local band on the rise: Phox. Hop on the bandwagon early, my friends - this talented group is quickly gaining fans, and you should be one of them. Fronted by the fantastic female vocalist Monica Martin, Phox features brothers Matt & Davey Roberts, as well as Matt Holmen, Cheston Van Huss, and Jason Krunnfusz. All six members have Baraboo roots and have been previously involved with other bands. Last fall, these hometown friends came together to form Phox, and you can download their trio of demos for free here.

If you're thinking that these will be shoddy garage demos, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The phoxes are a talented group of musicians, each yielding multiple instruments to craft a creative, folky sound. It's enough pop to have you singing along on the first listen, and it's enough rock to keep your ears interested. "Evil" is a catchy gem that you'll want to immediately play again. Go ahead, take a listen.

You're addicted to that irresitable intro already, aren't you? Guess what the best part is - they sound this good live. See for yourself this Friday, when Phox opens for Company of Thieves at the Majestic Theatre.
