OX: Canadian Alt Country

OX

Ox is a band from Sadbury, Ontario and they have released their second album called Burnout this year. They have made a few videos with a filmmaker John Alden Milne who is also from Sadbury and done videos for another Canadian band Great Lake swimmers. Below are the videos for two cuts off the album "Prom Queen" and "Unknown Legend". If you have not heard the first album American Lo-Fi I recomend checking that one out as well.

thank god! another boring alt country band, and this one from canada. I love you Tomas but my ipod only holds 8 gigs and I'm not gonna fill it up with a bunch of angsty wilco wannabes that are all playing different versions of the same song, no matter how cool their lucky brand western shirts are.

You love me? Do I know you? Is there some stuff on the blog that you particularly like that we can do more of. I am big alt country fan but we try and bring the readers a span of different sounds. Thanks for reading.

Hey anonymous ur an idiot. Ox sounds nothing like Wilco. Personally I've been listening to them since dustbowl and I think Burnout is a sign of their sound maturing into something truly unique. Flockalone is not a blog for haters! Thanks for writing this entry, firenze!

Oh Canada, I can only assume you're canadian so I can't blame you for having slightly lower standards when it comes to music. I bet you would like Creed if they were from canada, in fact i bet you like creed period. As for Ferenzi's question please don't change what you're doing. I dont read flockalone just to read about bands i like. I particularly enjoyed disliking ox

I can tell from your agro demeanor that you're obviously from new york. talk all the smack you want about canada, at least i have health insurance. America may be the home of some great music but it's also the home of britney spears and taylor swift

say something nasty about taylor swift again and i'll follow the tubes at the back of my computer to your ice fishing shack and beat you so bad you'll need that health insurance you beady eyed bastard

oh canada said...

Taylor Swift is just another Hannah Montana dissquised as pop country (another genre of american music that sucks)

hey canada i'm following the tubes right now, go grab ur hockey mask. You're just jealous because Taylor Swift is SO HOT and you live in a country that quite simply doesn't produce attractive people in general. In fact, name one canadian who's comparable physically to Taylor swift and I'll shut

Im with anonomys on this one. I'll admit canada produced good salmon, but save your maxell tape and dont record anymore music. (cough, alanis, cough, morrisette, cough)
