Some places you feel like you only sort of fit in and it is this
theme that permeates Houston based folk rock band Buxton’s new aptly
titled album Half A Native. One of the leading lights of an emerging music
scene from a city with a burgeoning youth culture, Buxton have won 2
Houston Press music awards as best Houston folk/americana band as
well as best male vocals (Sergio Trevino).
Their new album ventures into vast sonic territories, sometimes
pairing atmospheric piano with off-kilter electric guitar, blanketed by
Trevino’s heart-clenched voice and melancholic but optimistic lyrics.
"We take from a lot of different genres and present it in a way that I think
is most honest for us,” Trevino says. “You’ll hear rock, folk, country,
ambience, and distortion, all interpreted through us.”
Recorded in Los Angeles with Thom Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
Devendra Banhart and Vetiver), the 11 new tracks broadcast a wandering
sound, from the dusty tones of guitar-slinging anthems to lonesome
acoustic affairs that look outward and within. Their latest effort is
music for the search for home; the long journey to find somewhere,
something, or someone that makes everything fall into place.
