The Shakedown: Phox - Kingfisher/ Slow Motion

Feels Like: An indie-tinged Hurray For The Riff Raff, The Polyphonic Spree, Fleet Foxes, Feist

I think I can say without a doubt that the past year has been a whirlwind for the indie six-piece group out of Wisconsin. The brethren and I first caught a glimpse of this band when they played a Red Bull: Sound Select show in town last fall. After the show, I approached Matteo Roberts of the band and he was gracious enough to offer me a free listen of their EP. Next thing I know, I am seeing pictures on Instragram of their shows and listening to  Phox's set at the iTunes Festival. They play a 'sophies choice' set against Dawes on Saturday of Shaky Knees, but I am definitely looking forward to checking out their soft, airy, indie-folk hybrid sound this weekend.
