Faux Hoax - "Your Friends Will Carry You Home" 7"

Faux Hoax (pronounced “folks”) includes Danny from Menomena and Lackthereof, John Askew of Tracker, Dave Allen from Gang of Four and Joe Haege from 31Knots with special guest Adam Gnade (Asthmatic Kitty). You can pre-order and Polyvinyl Records will ship their debut 7” starting on May 8th. It includes the songs “Your Friends Will Carry You Home” and “Hippies Will Rule”. The first pressing is limited to 1000 copies and comes with a download code for those tracks plus 2 additional songs, “Foxworthy” and “Underwood”. A loose collaboration, Faux Hoax plan on writing a full-length with a revolving door of various vocalists and contributors soon, or maybe not. Not a lot is known about the band, this could be their only release and they might not ever tour. So enjoy it while you can!

“Your Friends Will Carry You Home” is a catchy, spoken word piece with vocals and lyrics from Adam Gnade who sounds a bit like Issac Brock of Modest Mouse. Fans of Menomena will recognize Danny’s vocals on “Hippies Will Rule” and “Foxworthy”, the latter song even has a shuffling beat and a multi-part vocal exercise at the end, reminiscent of the parent band. The last song, “Underwood” is an instrumental that replicates the sped up reversing sounds of when you hold down the rewind button while the song is still playing on a tape player. The ultimate in high tech studio gadgetry!
