is temporarily down due to exceeding bandwidth limits, but check back in a day and it should hopefully be sorted out, fingers crossed.

“Voxtrot have been taking the indie world by storm lately, and after hearing this EP - it's quite easy to see why!" - Indiepages, August 2005

"The brevity of Raised By Wolves is it's only flaw; after being so quickly and thoroughly charmed, you'll definitely want more." - Mundane Sounds, August 2005

"The future is promising indeed for Voxtrot, Austin's answer to precious, literate pop. Their debut EP falls somewhere between ‘name that Smiths song’ and toe-tapping, Anglophiliac twee-pop perfection.” – Austin Chronicle, April 2004

"Voxtrot saved my cat from a tree. They seriously sang it down! It was beautiful and I wish I'd had my DVR Camcorder with me so I could show the world!" -Dreams of Horses, August 2005

"Voxtrot is the real deal... Think Cure, Elkland, Smiths, Bloc Party, Killers, Bravery, Roy Orbison(?!)...just about everything good all tied up into one little package. They were superb live, and were able to fill Rothko up to capacity, a task I've only seen done before by The Secret Machines and The Futureheads. Bravo." - Centralvillage, January 2005

"Like the lost offspring of the Smiths and the Pale Saints, Voxtrot offer a hefty production. Their music, like The Dears', is laden with multiple guitars, the occasional waft of strings, and the sweetest vocals since the early '90s, when twee crumpets and adolescent angst fresh from English townsinvaded the States." - See You In The Pit, March 2005

"Dashing through the decades like a groupie on speed, longtime Austin fivepiece Voxtrot takes elements from Gang of Four, Joy Division, the Smiths, and R.E.M., rubs them up in a tight little ball, and bounces it on the hi-hat in rhythm." - SXSW Picks & Sleepers, Austin Chronicle 2005

A late comment but I just learned of the band and sampled a song. Possibly the best song ever made. Thanks for mentioning them :)
