It’s always nice to see a deserving band enter the indie ‘circle’. Last year, Voxtrot worked hard to gain fans and woo critics, releasing three EPs, and toured with the Shins. After such a busy year, it was probably tempting simply compile all the EP’s for their first LP; but instead, they took a risk and recorded all new songs for their self-titled debut. Voxtrot sounds exactly like a record made by a band needing a little break after a tough year. It’s a little mellower than the rest of their work, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing; fans need a break sometimes, too.
