BUXTON – FRIDAY, 2/20 @ 7:00PM

 

SOME PLACES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ONLY SORT OF FIT IN AND IT IS THIS THEME THAT PERMEATES HOUSTON BASED FOLK ROCK BAND BUXTON’S NEW APTLY TITLED ALBUM HALF A NATIVE. ONE OF THE LEADING LIGHTS OF AN EMERGING MUSIC SCENE FROM A CITY WITH A BURGEONING YOUTH CULTURE, BUXTON HAVE WON 2 HOUSTON PRESS MUSIC AWARDS AS BEST HOUSTON FOLK/AMERICANA BAND AS WELL AS BEST MALE VOCALS (SERGIO TREVINO).

THEIR NEW ALBUM VENTURES INTO VAST SONIC TERRITORIES, SOMETIMES PAIRING ATMOSPHERIC PIANO WITH OFF-KILTER ELECTRIC GUITAR, BLANKETED BY TREVINO’S HEART-CLENCHED VOICE AND MELANCHOLIC BUT OPTIMISTIC LYRICS. “WE TAKE FROM A LOT OF DIFFERENT GENRES AND PRESENT IT IN A WAY THAT I THINK IS MOST HONEST FOR US,” TREVINO SAYS. “YOU’LL HEAR ROCK, FOLK, COUNTRY, AMBIENCE, AND DISTORTION, ALL INTERPRETED THROUGH US.”

RECORDED IN LOS ANGELES WITH THOM MONAHAN (PETER, BJORN & JOHN, DEVENDRA BANHART AND VETIVER), THE 11 NEW TRACKS BROADCAST A WANDERING SOUND, FROM THE DUSTY TONES OF GUITAR-SLINGING ANTHEMS TO LONESOME ACOUSTIC AFFAIRS THAT LOOK OUTWARD AND WITHIN. THEIR LATEST EFFORT IS MUSIC FOR THE SEARCH FOR HOME; THE LONG JOURNEY TO FIND SOMEWHERE, SOMETHING, OR SOMEONE THAT MAKES EVERYTHING FALL INTO PLACE.
