New Music From Oax

While perusing the internets, I came across a song by Oax (pronounced Oaks) who we recently discovered opening for The Rosebuds last weekend.  Digging a little deeper into the bio, it turns out that leading man Giorgio Angelini recently returned to Houston by way of NYC to pursue his master’s degree after a long stint in the music game playing bass for The Rosebuds and Bishop Allen.  After a short hiatus focusing on his degree, Angelini could stay away no longer and recorded a mostly solo album (mixed at Public Hi-Fi in Austin) with guest vocals from Chris Simpson on one song and drums from Jim Eno on another.  The song I picked up “Liar, Cheat, Jerk” appears on new EP The Distance which is available now on Bladen County Records.  It’s sort of a Lucero meets early Wilco style that we here at ATH dig.
