Rock ‘n’ brazen roll, deep down ‘n’ a bit gritty in the Southwest, flecked with controlled aggression and laconically stoned vocal delivery then suddenly swaggeringly ablaze with towering sonic crescendos and shoe-gazey nous – and that’s just the second track, Badlands, an eight-minute plus noise epic.

There are just so many little touches that lift Black Foxxes from your usual post punk gee-tar drudgery offered by so many wannabes; from the punctuated echoing feedback or muttered musings in My Skin to pulsing migraine rim shots through Drug Holiday or even the easy listening swing to fuzzed out solo in Swim which displays their thoughtful approach to creating what is a thoroughly listenable album as their third official long form outing.
