Buxton, who Esquire.com calls one of “2012 Artists to Watch,” continue to tour in support of their New West Records debut album Nothing Here Seems Strange heralded by My Old Kentucky Blog as “a well-realized bouquet of emotive, often beautiful imagery that propels its vistas with visceral energy.” Buxton’s music is a study in contrasts: rock and folk, subtle yet eccentric, lush harmonies over prickly guitar. Paste explains, “The sound on Nothing Here Seems Strange fluctuates between traditional Americana and a more garagefolk sound that places the album in a larger scope than you’d expect of a folk band.”
Rarely does a young band emerge with a combination of skills, talents and vision fully developed. Outfits in which each member shares a singular artistic vision and the ability to see it through is a trait mostly found in heritage artists who’ve spent decades performing together. Not the case for the LA-based quintet The Lonely Wild, whose writing and arranging talents are only surpassed by their ability to work seamlessly as one, dynamic voice.
