FOXFIRES: The Golden Age: 7”

Nov 13, 2013

I’ve seen Foxfires live several times, but this was my first time experiencing them on recording. This 7” does an excellent job of capturing their live sound. This is a record sure to inspire as much moshing and sing-alongs at home as Foxfires inspire at their shows. What really makes Foxfires for me is not just that they rock musically, but lyrically. Vocalist Josh Lyford is a solid performer on the mic, and his almost stream-of-consciousness lyrics tackle themes that are deeply personal, expressed in poetic terms that gives Foxfires a gravitas the music alone can’t quite convey. I dug this record from the start, but I enjoyed it even more after repeated listens as I picked up on the lyrics.
