When you hear “Foxes”… what comes to mind? The viral video for “what does the fox say”? An enchanting mammal? For me, I think of the astounding Louisa Rose Allen. It’s likely that (at the very least) you’ve heard her vocals on Zedd’s infectious track “Clarity”. At the young age of 24, this English born singer/music school dropout has proven to everyone, and herself, that Foxes is a name to be known in the music biz. This past Tuesday night, the Troubadour in West Hollywood was crammed full of fans and Foxes left everything on the stage with an absolutely stellar performance. Her dancing, her voice, her honest yet powerful presence. The west coast of the US was fortunate enough to kick off Foxes’ current tour. If you’re on the east coast, you still have your chance, don’t sleep on seeing this artist live. Also, Foxes’ new album comes out March 2014. You can pre-order HERE and even have it signed by her (for a limited time only).

Moodgadget labelmates Foxes in Fiction and Benoit Pioulard connect on the sweeping “Ground Glass”. The track, part of a limited 7″ being released by Wool Recordings, combines the two principal’s love for blending traditional pop song structures and field recorded sounds. The results of the collaboration, as evident here by the dreamy otherworldly warmth of “Ground Glass” are next level. “Ground Glass” is some of the most beautiful music we’ve heard thusfar this year.Foxes in Fiction + Benoît Pioulard – Ground Glass

The recently monikered Foxes is the latest project courtesy of Neon Gold sure to be set on #repeat. Toquote: “This 22-year old superstar in waiting writes leftfield pop anthems with the kind of infectious ambition that has desk-strapped A&Rs foaming at the checkbook.” Get familiar below:Foxes – Youth Foxes – Home
Pleasant vibes blown in from the Pacific Northwest. Previewed from the upcoming Helplessness Blues is “Montezuma”, a paean to two of rock and roll’s most popular subjects, love and the past.Fleet Foxes – Montezuma
Material from Fleet Foxes’ Helplessness Blues continues to meet expectations. “Lorelai” feels like a deeper album cut – still poppy, you can hear how it might play off “Battery Kinzie” and the title track on the full-length. Helplessness Blues is released May 3. Calendars marked.Fleet Foxes – Lorelai

“Red Water”, the new track from L.A. band Dream Vacation, is excerpted here from the band’s new self-titled EP. Produced by John Rausch (engineer for Florence + The Machine, Foxes, and Taylor Swift), “Red Water” picks up palette-wise on a mix of Disintegration-era Cure mood and Unforgettable Fire U2 melodicism. A potent blend of anthemic ideas and the instrumental scale to support such ambitions, “Red Water” is a strong listen we recommend. Stream the B3 Premiere of “Red Water” from L.A.’s Dream Vacation below.
