"The Noise"


...I have found myself seeing a lot of this band over the past few months, attending almost every Buxton show since January---both for local support and for my own musical cravings. So by now I have come to know their songs as well as the ones daily commuters hear on the car radio driving home. During each set I look forward to particular favorites, notice new, standout tunes, and occasionally find myself singing along when the pop-rock melody gets too addictive. This might explain why I am finding their acoustic show at the cute, quaint Kendall CafÎ to be so refreshing! For a band with guitar driven rock that aims at giving the loudest performance possible, planning an acoustic show seems like a tough, maybe even impossible, gig---but worthy of the challenge. The boys of Buxton are true musicians and lead singer Scott Chase writes songs that are likable in any context. Breaking things down and emphasizing lyrics turn these rock stars into poets and call attention to musical arrangements that I had yet to notice. Even though I will always look forward to the next rockin' Buxton show, I'll remember this particularly for its proof that Buxton's songs don't sound so good just because they're loud and powerful, but because they're written well and being played with skill and care. - Vanessa Earl

Bio

Often described as a "Weezer meets Sonic Youth", Buxton is a heavy melodic rock band. Three guitars scream distorted guitarmonies and chug solid rythms. Vocals are in your face without being overbearing and monotous.

Buxton has been gigging around Boston for the past three years. The band has recorded and produced two EPs and is currently at work completing the upcoming LP, "This Used to be Fun."
