Houston based band Buxton‘s music is a study in contrasts: rock and folk, subtle yet eccentric, lush harmonies over prickly guitar. Paste explains, “The sound on Nothing Here Seems Strange fluctuates between traditional Americana and a more garagefolk sound that places the album in a larger scope than you’d expect of a folk band.” They rock with a fusion of lovely harmonies, jarring explosions of energy and meticulously applied instrumentation that is at once totally unexpected and completely welcome. Buxton recently released their debut album, Nothing Here Seems Strange, which has been a critical success. Buxton was in town recently, and while they were here they managed to take some time to stop by Studio 1a to record a live set with KUT. Listen to it here now!
