After releasing a series of much-praised EPs, blogger-beloved Austin indie poppers Voxtrot are finally offering up a self-titled full-length this May, from which “Kid Gloves” is the first sample. The band brings some strings by the tom-friendly tune’s B section (no surprise if you’ve seen ‘em live), with Ramesh calling himself “a vanity whore” and begging his muse to “cheer me up, I’m a miserable fuck.” The man’s got a way with words.
Voxtrot – “Kid Gloves” (MP3)
Voxtrot is out 5/22 on Playlouder/Beggars.
