Fire Drill Review:
Massachusetts band Quixote just recently released their self-titled debut record that draws from a little bit of everything as you can find elements of folk, hip-hop, classical, 60's pop, and electronica, in the mix - making Quixote a very intriguing record. The lo-fi vibe of the tracks may discourage you at first from giving Quixote a legitimate listen but the band cultivates an energy as each song builds up its momentum. Most of this is executed by vocalist/guitarist Joe Stulpin as he can go from a spoken word lyric into a soaring chorus line with a snap, much like The Walkmen or Strokes pulled off before them. Quixote offer up a bit different overall approach to their music as the injection of accordion, violin and airy samples give their debut a whole new aura that is an entertaining listen!
