I'm dedicating this Music Monday to pay tribute to the indie band Voxtrot. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Voxtrot was one of my favorite twee bands until they decided to call it quits this past April and are currently busy wrapping up their farewell tour. I initially stumbled upon Voxtrot while I was busy studying for the LSAT and their Raised by Wolves and Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives EP's quickly became staples on my iPod.
Songs like, "The Start of Something," showcase Ramesh Srivastava's smooth vocals with the band's catchy beats and is my favorite Voxtrot song of all-time. Here is a live recording taken from Sonic Boom Records in Seattle during 2006.
From the Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives EP, is the track, "Four Long Days." Unfortunately, I was unable to find a nice live recording or official video but the song is what really deserves attention anyways.
Although their much anticipated self-titled debut album fell short in many people's opinion, expectations were unrealistic considering the amount of hype the band received from their two stellar EP's. While Voxtrot may never have been able to realize their full potential, they had a good run and along the way produced some incredible indie-pop. Happy Monday!
