Endoxi – New Blood Old Soul

10 02 2009


Campfire music that really rocks…Endoxi’s first EP New Blood, Old Soul is exactly what it says it is.  They bring life to music with a timeless energy that sounds like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard before.  They capture the sense of nostalgia, much like O.A.R. does, but with more of a west coast style.  It’s evident that they don’t just throw words together to fit their music, but instead, craft them in such a way as to bring out the emotion that’s already so present in every note.  If you took the music out of the equation, these are lyrics that could stand alone and still tell a story of love, hurt and a lot of self-discovery.

I always say that it’s not where you are, but who you’re with that really matters (ok, so Dave Matthews said it too), and if you were with those people that really matter, just laughing, having a few beers, and throwin’ some burgers on the BBQ, this is the music you’d want to listen to.  On another note, if you see them live, you really get a sense of the ability they have to bring up the intensity of the music and really rock out (and if you’re someone who get’s into drummers…this one is pretty f’n amazing).

You’ve gotta give the sax a lot of credit for distinguishing their sound, but that’s just the icing on the cake.  These are 4 very talented musicians that all bring something to the table, and the band just wouldn’t be the same without any of them.  This is one of those CDs that keeps finding itself back into the rotation, even though I listened to it a ridiculous amount of times after seeing them peform an accoustic act at 710 Beach Club.  So why only 4 thongs? Although the music leaves a delcious aftertaste, the EP is only 5 songs…and it only makes you hungry for more.
