SO FOX: self-titled: 7″

It was a shitty time when the Selby Tigers called it a day in the Spring of 2002. They were one of the first two bands I interviewed for Razorcake and were equal parts rock’n’roll showmanship, sweat and shake new wave, all wrapped in a world of fireworks. My hesitation to plop this 7”er down was unwarranted. There are definitely remnants of the Selby sound from the weird but kept-in-check guitaring and the pound the sky drums. But the most obvious overlap is Arzu’s voice, still strong and resonant. These four songs are definitely not throwbacks or rip offs. If anything, So Fox is more of a constant straight-ahead push forward than the Selbys. The first, “Teen Beat,” is my favorite. Effects and intricacies are replaced by a more sleeves-rolled-up, non-ass rock’n’rolling. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes…
