"...expect vocals only as an accompaniment to the band's arching textural excursions, which are 'post rock' for their guitar/bass/drum instrumentation but more concerned with the ability of those blessed German jam bands of the '70s to burn both slow and bright."

Experimental beats, otherworldly echoes, and thick of deep, dark textures surround Avoxblue, the new solo project of Jimmy Rossi, Jr., creating an ethereal atmosphere which can easily consume the listener. Over the past five years, Cambridge has been recognized as a hotspot for the regeneration of shoegaze – first made popular by bands like My Bloody Valentine in the late 80s/early 90s – with the appearance of sub genres like metalgaze, stargaze, and spacegaze. Rossi's former project, The December Sound was on the forefront of psychedelic shoegaze movement, epitomizing the "wall-of-sound" that was associated with this genre. However, after going on a hiatus in 2009, Rossi felt inspired to experiment freely with his own music. By fusing the electronic, synthetically hypnotic sounds of new wave with the reverb heavy, lyrically indistinguishable, and distorted features of shoegaze, Rossi is able to create, in his own words, "an electric wall of sound". The dreamy soundscapes that Avoxblue creates are recreated live, and it is not uncommon to find yourself hypnotized for the entire duration of the set. Recent live performances, like his August 9th show with Memoryhouse and Twin Sister, have been causing a buzz in the live music circuit. His stunning visuals, live multi-tracking, and sense of the audience has been impressing local music critics and national touring acts. With an album scheduled to drop in early February, Avoxblue has been planning tour dates, both locally and nationally.

"To local music fans, Nikki Dessingue needs no introduction. Whether out front in Where the Land Meets the Sea or behind keyboards for C4RT, her voice has long been a part of our sound. Now she's joined with Kurt Schneider (ex-This Car Up) for a raw two-part electronic project [Stereo Telescope]. "Geography" is totally on the money. Both artists contribute layered vocals, and the melody carries itself. There are electronic and acoustic flourishes, and it sounds like MGMT or Beach House, all that. B-side "Lighthouse" puts Nikki's voice front and center, perhaps too much. Schneider's counter-vocals are more cool and collected. The song itself seriously bumps and pumps, though, like a cranky future machine. We here at the Dig have been waiting for Boston to produce output like this. And now you are. Well done; buy yourself a beer!" [David Day of Weekly Dig]
