Nashville Scene

A lo-fi collaboration between Dewese and his Texas-based boyhood chum Jerry James, the Foxymorons indulge in slapdash, Americana-inclined “found pop,” with melodies, lyrics, and licks that seem to have slipped straight from the nerve center of the brain to the fingers and mouths of the musicians. Their debut lp Calcutta was a little too inert, but the follow-up, rodeo city, conveys relaxation and recreation without fogging out. It’s a cool thing, and the band’s first middle Tennessee gig should be cool as well.
