I know it's been well over twenty years and this is an old man complaint, but a lot of newer Kill Rock Stars releases don't sound like what I picture Kill Rock Stars releases to sound like. Of course they don't. The music industry and tastes change, and a label needs to evolve to stay current. Los Angeles' Foxx Bodies sound like classic Kill Rock Stars. Their latest single, "Runaway," is roughly a minute long. (The YouTube video clocks in at two minutes exactly with a thirty second intro and ending. It sounds like a mash up of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bratmobile. It's wonderfully punk in that mocking way that I can never resist.
You can watch the video for "Runaway" below. Vixen is due out November 5 on Kill Rock Stars. You can pre-order/pre-save the album here. For more on Foxx Bodies, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
