Red Fox Grey Fox

It's been forever since I visited some of my own favorite music blogs, so it was decided to make the rounds on a couple of occasions last week. One of the more fortunate of these adventures was to MFR where I found plenty of good stuff including today's featured artist. Red Fox Grey Fox is a pop threaded, indie rock quartet consisting of Peter Miller (vocals, guitar, keys), Jeremiah Satterthwaite (guitar, keys), Stephen Lindquist (drums, keys) and Benjamin Pien (bass guitar, keys) from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band's new full length CD From The Land Of Bears, Ice and Rock was made available August 7 through Minneapolis based Say Rah Records (Say Rah MySpace) which is an branch of parent (and equally good) label Afternoon Records. When listening to the lead track Building A Building, the first thing you might notice is Peter Miller's unique vocal tone. His range is an amazing treat that lends a refreshing departure from many artists the band lists as being influential to their sound. Somewhere around the 1:50 mark of this song, the band jumps into a beautiful gallop that had me hooked for repeated listens. If you would like additional info, upcoming live dates and more great music, check out the Red Fox Grey Fox MySpace page. This new release deserves a high recommendation from MML... quite addictive, don't you think?
