Foxy Shazam, y’all. They’ve been blowing my mind. I can’t stop listening. Ever since I saw them at a show at The End in Nashville earlier this week (which we actually went to to see Hollerado, whom I expounded upon in yesterday’s post), their self-titled album has been on constant rotation – on my alarm clock, a Pandora radio station at work, in the car, on my iPod while I work out…. I think it’s safe to say I’m obsessed. And can you blame me?! Their brand of glam funk rock is so utterly mesmerizing; it’s a kind of music rich and electric, magnetic in the fullness of their sound and the vibrancy of their performance. Foxy Shazam is a six-piece from Cincinnati frequently compared to Queen, Meat Loaf, and The Darkness. And that live show on Tuesday was, simply put, a spectacle. I had never heard of them before, and I consider myself lucky for being at that show.
Now, I know that you guys trust my opinion in all things fabulous in the music world, but I say! Don’t! See for yourself! You all just head on over to their MySpace, and listen to “Count Me Out,” the single “Unstoppable,” “Bye Bye Symphony,” and “Wanna-be Angel.” Like right now. Or no, wait. Watch this totally insane music video of “Oh Lord.” Then go, go, go! HAPPY FUNK-ROCKIN’ WEEKEND TO ALL.
