Twin brothers Sam and Collin McCabe and drummer Jared Marcell released their Bantam Foxes
, in 2013. The band's first full-length effort glimpsed the high-volume garage rock 'n' roll ahead. With its latest, the focused four-track EP Give Us a Raise
, Bantam Foxes admits it's best listened to with the volume all the way up.
The band stacks layers of overdriven, fuzz-covered glam rock guitar and bass riffs over Marcell's one-man army of drums. There's dark, grooving '90s alt-rock (a la Breeders and Toadies) on "Trapped" and pummeling, Sabbath-inspired guitar runs on "Never."
The band's next New Orleans dates include two shows on May 16: at Bayou Boogaloo by day and Gasa Gasa by night. Listen to "Without Me"
