The Stranger Wants to Make Sure You Catch Fox and the Law @ Capitol Hill Block Party

"(Sat, 7:45 pm, Neumos Stage) If it’s rock you’re looking for, you should probably check out Fox and the Law. Everything about this band seems to be braided together from rock-and-roll history, from Guy Keltner’s Mick Jagger–esque mouth to their fuzzy T. Rex guitar licks and the wailing bluesy instrumental breakdowns that hit occasional Led Zeppelin–y peaks. They’re young, they’re pretty, and they’re going places."

Daniel McKenzie of Identical Homes Talks About His Love of Vinyl At The Vinyl District!

I have nothing against iPods, I’m not sure I could survive my work day without one. But when I get home, and I really want to listen to music, I always prefer the tradition of putting on a record.

The Revue Called The Wild Reeds’ Title Track Single Off Their Upcoming Album “Absolutely Gorgeous.”

"Their lead single is absolutely gorgeous, filled with dreamy, beautiful harmonies and melodies. The song is part indie folk; part ’70s LA-scene, lush music; and part Americana. Imagine putting Local Natives, Lucius, and Phox all in a room together, and the byproduct would be The Wild Reeds."

The Vinyl District Premiered Fox and the Law’s “Cheap Talk,” the First Single off Their Upcoming Album, ‘Stoned to Death!’

"Seattle-based hard-rockers Fox and the Law know exactly what it takes to bring the garage to the ballroom. Their loud, energetic barn burners draw heavily on blues and DIY without sacrificing mainstream appeal, harking back to a time when the Seattle sound was informed by raucous, unchained energy."

Although they’ve always been on the experimental side, Prime (the name of the new album), is definitely a post-rock record but goes beyond that… Manipulations is always in the mix with these guys.”
