about

Their purely instrumental aspect may be off-putting to some listeners used to hearing voices leading the way, but Benavides’ tasteful guitar lines are always so melodic that it seems a vocalist would just be a waste of space. Now, with Balmat trading time with him upfront in the solo department, the group has really come into its own. “Benson” finds the two playing in tandem during sections, while “Dancing Birds” fittingly has the two twirling around each other throughout. “Marsh Mellow” does more in 1:31 than most songs will accomplish in four minutes: A low-key groove finds subtle electric guitar whispering along to a drunken, woody bass dirge.

Whether they’re encircling African rhythms (“La Patrona”), dreamy psychedelia (“Sombra”) or exotic flavors (“Chicha”), the Red Fox Tails have taken their eclectic formula to the next level. “- Dustin Lothspeich, NBC SoundDiego

**************************************************************

"Besides having a compositional structure, the tunes all carry a narrative quality, as though many of them were plucked from B-movie soundtracks from decades past. From tune to tune it’s easy to visualize scenes from old-time spy thrillers, spaghetti westerns, or technicolor costume pageants that told the stories of Ali Baba or Omar Khayyam.

I listened to this disk again and again, sinking deeper under its spell each time. It was as though it had me making travel plans to places I’ve never heard of."

- Paul Hormick, October 2014 San Diego Troubadour
