Voxhaul Broadcast ever so silently took the stage at Los Angeles’ historic Troubadour only to, moments later, slash the silence with the epic distorted opening of their newest single Turn the Kinfe. Dressed in what has become his trademark bolo tie, and a sodded off flack jacket, frontman David Dennis proved just as nimble a live performer as on the record; showcasing his textured delivery and his ability to stretch his chords across the precipice of vocal sanity. What David Dennis, Anthony Aguir, Phil Munsey II, and Kurt Allen bring to today’s soundscape is a strain of soulful , full-bodied rock that deftly covers the spectrum from sways to screams. Not afraid to explore the nuances of their genre, you get songs like Lost Control- a sweeping number that built to a momentous crescendo before leaving its lofty perch and coming to an elegant close.
An intimate venue, the Troubadour has played host to some of music’s top names, and most sought after performances. Rather than letting that go to their heads, the group remained true to their roots and paid homage to their friends, and the fans they have spent the past 6 years cultivating by closing with fan favorites. Their penultimate performance of Rotten Apples, a lo-fi, if not incredibly catchy, 2007 single set the crowd in motion. If you don’t find yourself bouncing in some capacity to this one your feet must be glued to the floor.
