NYC trio Desert Foxx mix dark Americana, jazz and post-rock on their Kill Together, adding another branch to the big tree that is called avant-garde. It sounds like King Crimson was having a row with Ry Cooder and Sonic Youth, with pastoral segments being blown to pieces by loud outbursts of guitar. The band's composer Mike DeiCont keeps it all together, acting as a pied piper playing bass.
Kill Together could serve as the soundtrack for a late night short Western movie directed by the Coen Brothers. No changes for Hollywood ending - the hero is likely to die too in the final shoot out.
