“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” —Heraclitus
When you listen to Chicago-based 5-piece Fox The Cat (cool name by the way) you immediately pick up on a certain honesty and simplicity pouring forth from their music; like a spiritual geyser unleashed. One gets the feeling this is music well-wrought from a place not easily accessible to a lot of bands. And too, like the above quote by Heraclitus, these songs are ever-changing. Not because they are mercurial or insubstantial, but because they are mood- and thought-provoking odes to life and living. And, because of the veritable richness and depth of the songwriting, deeper meaning can be discerned from each and every listen. So, it is hard to believe these guys recently assembled this already well-formed band in October of 2011. Perhaps, this is the kind of chemistry made possible by the close friendship shared between each band member. Watch the live acoustic rendition of their song, “The Old You” and you feel the intimacy and raw quality slip into a cracked window inside your heart. Below, check out the band’s self-titled EP after the jump. Casey, Abe, Jimmy, Luke and Paul thank you for the beauty of what you’ve rendered from the collective opening of your hearts. And, if only by virtue of our delighted first impression alone, Fox The Cat are most assuredly a band to watch. Check out the band’s Facebook page for the free EP download. Peace. - Mitten Mouth Music - D. Durand

I don't normally feature new American bands. Mainly because the few that interest me have already been discussed at length on the hundreds of excellent blogs across the pond. But Chicago's Fox The Cat seem rather devoid of such attention. Or any attention really. So here's where I step in and tell you a little more about their compellingly solemn sound.

The five piece have only been going since October 2011, and are giving away their first recordings - a three track demo. The band produce an evocative sound, with hints of Grizzly Bear as well as the newer Bon Iver, best heard on the stunning 'Electric Wires'. "How I wish I could just live a few moments over again." I'm going to assume they mean speciall moments. Special moments like this. - Faded Glamour - Sam Daas
