Although they’ve been selling the album at shows since June, it’s getting a proper release a week after their Noise Pop performance at the Chapel [...]

Noise Pop Review: The Stone Foxes, Voxhaul Broadcast, Ferocious Few, The Soft White Sixties @ The Independent 2/24/11

Photos by: Agata Kamler I've seen the Ferocious Few more time than I care to count. I've seen them in parks, on street corners, at raucous outdoor festivals. I saw them play in the middle of a packed street during a joyous near-riot the night Obama was elected. I've seen them so regularly that I once recognized their guitarist on an airplane. This may be the only local band at their level I've seen often enough to pick out of crowd whose members I didn't know personally (I'm terrible with faces). Yet, I've never seen them indoors or gone out [...]
