The Fox Hunt - Nowhere Bound
(Skull City Records)
The Fox Hunt are a bluegrass/alt. country band from West Virginia who manage to stand out from the densely packed crowd, primarily down to the fact they write above average tunes. They have banjo, fiddle, mandolin and upright bass in their repertoire – all expertly played – but it’s the songs that really impress, from the Old Crow Medicine Show charms of opener ‘Crack Shot’ to the old timey elegance of ‘Lord, We Get High’. ‘It’s just an old drinking song’, croon John R Miller and Matt Kline in perfect harmony. No, it’s much more than that.
