Goose & Fox, Jeffrey Martin and Barna Howard


Lola's Room (map) Downtown
Thu., Nov. 7, 8 p.m. 2013 All Ages


Everything about Goose and Fox is big. The songs that comprise the band's debut, My Mouth, the Sea, burst at the seams with horns, strings, pianos, guitars, xylophone, drums, and soaring, gorgeous vocal harmonies. And while there's a big sound permeating peppy numbers like "The Stone"—a kind of fast-forward spaghetti western shuffle—it's just songwriters Noah Woodburn and Allison Hall behind the whole thing. It wasn't until recently that the two decided to shoot the orchestral-pop moon, recruit a band, and get everyone into Woodburn's New North Sound studio. There are exceptions to the band's newfound expansion, as on the stripped-down "Rich as Can Be," which finds Hall's vocals expertly accompanied by Woodburn's liquid acoustic runs. Opening tonight's show is matter-of-fact folk troubadour Barna Howard, who alone is well worth the price of admission. RYAN J. PRADO
