Plus: Field Report
Wisconsin's fantastic Phox mix folk-pop, psychedelia, and a whole lot of soul into a crazy good time. 
Iron Horse Music Hall

PHOX describe themselves as “...a bunch of friends from the Midwestern circus hamlet, Baraboo, WI, a place where kids often drink poisoned groundwater and become endowed mutants." Their self-titled debut album, produced by Brian Joseph (Bov Iver, The Fray) at NYC’s Electric Lady, draws comparisons to Feist and even Cat Power. It has repeatedly been described as a breath of fresh air, something new from the post-Mumford, post-Vampire Weekend indie bands popping up around the country. Phox take all the elements of current indie trends like whistling and trumpet solos and combine them into a crazy mix of folk-pop, psychedelia rock, a whole lot of soul, and a crazy good time.
