Guy Fox is one of those bands that somehow never disappoints. Over the course of their careers here in the Bay, the band has cultivated a distinctive, accessible sound defined by strong distinctive rhythms and overall good vibes. (Look back at our first coverage of the band in 2012 here.)
On Paper Roads, the band continues their expert use of rhythm. Throw on some good headphones to get the full effect of the sonic experience – on every track, nearly all the instruments transform into additional percussion and every little note seems to have a distinct purpose. Recorded at Tiny Telephone with James Riotto, Paper Roads‘s an interesting mix of danceable pop with a somber tone – in fact, the only song that truly feels joyful is about giving up and moving to Canada.
Guy Fox celebrates the release of Paper Roads with a show next week at The Independent with Bows and Lee Bob and the Truth.
