The Doxies, In Search of... (10/10/06)
"In Search of... the latest studio release from
Columbia, Missouri's The Doxies has 11 rich
tracks based on solid cornerstones of altcountry,
vintage garage rock, and British Invasion
era, Kinks-style Brit Pop. The album features
hook laden songs with catchy melodies and lush
harmonies. These wonderful pop sensibilities are
juxtaposed by head nodding scorchers with
enough guitar riffs and licks to milk a goat."
THE DOXIES - Weight of Gold
"The Doxies discover a new sense of purpose and confidence on
Weight of Gold. At times the band molds their unified voice into a raucous
scream; at others they lull it to a mesmerizing whisper. The end result is
an album that becomes both lucid and other worldly. Like a distant and
long forgotten radio broadcast, The Doxies’ Weight of Gold is an invitation
to a place you haven’t been in awhile."
THE DOXIES - Tinderbox Tragedy
"This is the true sound of young people making Americana music, and it has the brashness and brightness of youth and also manages to pull in traditional forms. True it’s more in the vein of Slobberbone then Hank Williams, but, there’s plenty of Uncle Tupelo’ too: ‘Clouded by the Bottle’ and ‘Carry Me Home’ find a bridge between Gram and Tupelo and present as good a pair of dusty, flannel shirted indie-country songs as you can get. There are guitars everywhere; ‘High Road’ opens with a swaggering drum beat and guitars that’ll chop your firewood for you."
