My thanks to Pylons for sponsoring the website this week. The band just released their sophomore album, Macro Eye Close Up, which rips its name right from the center of the first song on the record, “Page Torn Down the Middle.” At under twenty minutes, the album manages to hone in on consistent stability, and an expansive sound, panning out and pulling in from an array of influences. Teetering somewhere on the brink of punk, alternative and rock ‘n’ roll, the dual vocal band utilizes their female/male fronted dynamic to give their listeners something both refreshing and reminiscent. Macro Eye Close Up earns itself upon the initial listen, and each and every one that will inevitably follow.

The title of Black Foxxes’ sophomore album, translated from Icelandic, means “rage.” Presumably, it comes from a lyric on the album’s closer “Float On”:
Now I understand rage, a feeling that is never subdued.
While Mark Holley’s assessment of the feeling is accurate, it doesn’t sum up the record quite so well. In fact, the biggest difference between Reiði and the band’s debut I’m Not Well is how much more subdued this record is.

Iconic toy retailer Toys ‘R’ Us Inc will shutter or sell its stores in the United States after failing to revamp its struggling business, putting 30,000 jobs at risk and leaving a void for vendors who supplied the company with $11 billion worth of goods a year.
As a kid there was no place I wanted to go more than Toys ‘R’ Us.
