On Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives, Austin, TX's indie pop hopefuls Voxtrot follow up their promising debut EP with a tougher, more dramatic sound that pushes them further away from their original influences. There are louder guitars on the EP, more impassioned vocals, and more shifts in dynamics and tone. The title track sets the stage right away with reverbed guitars reeling wildly around Ramesh Srivastava's forceful vocals; "Fast Asleep" follows with spiky guitars, blaring horns, and a rock-hard chorus. Indeed, it seems that the band has shifted allegiances from U.K. indie pop to D.C. punk-pop, specifically Ted Leo. As on the band's first EP, the influences are jumping-off points rather than blueprints to follow, and Voxtrot play with enough passion and energy to make it their own. The EP will only be a disappointment to fans who wanted another indie pop confection; those who can follow along with the band's shift will be pleased by the sprightly sound and first-rate indie rock songcraft. Still a band to pin hopes on, Voxtrot have a chance to develop into a truly interesting group. This EP is a solid step in that direction.
baby, i'd leave you for the person you used to be.
I have waited a ridiculous amount of time for iTunes to FINALLY get this EP! I love Voxtrot to death, and their debut was almost obscenely great, but this one just puts it to shame. My favorite song of all time, "Soft & Warm", is a warm, almost Hush Sound-esque side of Voxtrot, with a crisp, upbeat sound. "Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives" is another favorite of mine, though it sounds like it belongs on their last EP, with the crackling intro and indie feel. Overall, there's not a single song on this EP I wouldn't sell my soul for. Not even kidding.
wont be fast asleep

Voxtrot continues to impress those listeners wtih yet another hit album! Thier first album was great, but this album is even better!
