Solidly scored and equally deftly delivered tracks mark the sound of Foxholes who create music in which the listener has a feeling of confidence in as the well structured and layered songs float around the room.

The compositions thread the multiple guitars through each other in intricate patterns which enables them to provide both the grounding and expansiveness with percussion chivying along the pace as bass compacts loose ends whilst vocal is able to confidently lead the way.

The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is a well formulated collections of songs, my pick of which is the 5th – 34.

There is a lustrous munificence which surfaces through the speakers on hitting play on the circa twenty two minutes, four tracks of Third World Walker (available on bandcamp) that spills across the room in thick velvet cloaking of luxuriant texture in which the listener is invited to be cradled in tender, though, menacing embrace.

It is through the juxtapositions of softness of feel and coercive intent that gives the music its intensity and encirclement of the audience, making it of such intrigue.

My selection is the second number – Red Shift Motel.
