Buxton - Half A Native [CD]
This product is currently sold out.
Some places you feel like you only sort of fit in and it is this
theme that permeates Houston based folk rock band Buxton’s new aptly
titled album Half A Native. One of the leading lights of an emerging music
scene from a city with a burgeoning youth culture, Buxton have won 2
Houston Press music awards as best Houston folk/americana band as
well as best male vocals (Sergio Trevino).
Their new album ventures into vast sonic territories, sometimes
pairing atmospheric piano with off-kilter electric guitar, blanketed by
Trevino’s heart-clenched voice and melancholic but optimistic lyrics.
"We take from a lot of different genres and present it in a way that I think
is most honest for us,” Trevino says. “You’ll hear rock, folk, country,
ambience, and distortion, all interpreted through us.”
Recorded in Los Angeles with Thom Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
Devendra Banhart and Vetiver), the 11 new tracks broadcast a wandering
sound, from the dusty tones of guitar-slinging anthems to lonesome
acoustic affairs that look outward and within. Their latest effort is
music for the search for home; the long journey to find somewhere,
something, or someone that makes everything fall into place.
