You can call Minneapolis based Fox and Coyote by many things like complex, odd, psychedelic, experimental, avant-garde and so on. But you can´t call ´em mainstream, predictable or average.
Fox and Coyote is Ryan Evans - Lead Vocals/Guitar, Jonathan Harms - Lead Vocals/Banjo, Katherine Canon - Cello, Grant Gordon - Bass and Kenny Befus - Drums.
They have created a sound all their own, straddling the line between indie rock power and nu-folk insight. Imagine Blue October meets Mumford and Sons with a touch of jam band Phish and you´ll get their new album "Scattered shadows on a double bed".
We even get a dose of post-punk in the track "May 18" but it´s not one of my favorite songs on this 11 track album, the opening track "(Don´t tell me) There´s nothing in my head" is really cool and also the best song on "Scattered shadows on a double bed". This one bring thoughts to supergroup Gizmodrome featuring Adrian Belew, Stewart Copeland and Mark King.
The last three songs doesn´t hold up as good as the rest but they´re just a few small clouds on a sunny blue sky.
