Every once in a while, a band emerges with a sound that both draws from a wide range of influences, yet feels fresh in its execution. Such a band doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel necessarily, but is able to stand out from the pack because they are more than the sum of their influences, and infuse their sound with a new vitality and distinctive voice. Houston progressive group Vox Vocis are one such band, and in a few short years they’ve gone from making a splash in their local scene, to now embarking on their first nationwide tour.
Indie/Emo outfit Have Mercy from Baltimore, MD put on a beautifully intimate and emotion-driven set at The Regent Theater in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles last weekend. Also on the bill was Real Friends, Tiny Moving Parts, Broadside & Nothing, Nowhere, all of whom killed it as well.
