ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On July 4, 2015 I decided to make a stand against greed and all 4 of my album uploads at CD Baby are now available as FREE DOWNLOADS!! If you are happy with the music and would like to throw a few dollars in my tip jar it would be greatly appreciated. You can to do so by visiting the "Tip Jar & Free Downloads" page at my home website. There is an active link in my CD Baby links section to the left (Foxman Tip Jar), or you can simply search "Foxman Music Home". Thank You :)

Are you in the mood for something different, fun and a bit freaky? If so, then this is where you need to be. The Foxman is a groundbreaking songwriter who has taken creativity to an entirely new level. "Folklore & Superstitions" (2013, 15 songs) is the 4th Independent album release by the Foxman and a must own for fans of all ages and all musical genres. The underlining concept beneath everything the Foxman does can be summed up by one simple old adage .... 'God, the devil and the conscience in between'. "Folklore & Superstitions" is a meandering venture down the crossroads of life which will ultimately play upon your imagination and tug at your soul. Haunting, funny, inspiring, thought provoking, unique and utterly unforgettable. Albums like this don't come along very often. Here is a break down of all 15 songs:

1) Guilty - Country/ Rockabilly tune sung from the perspective of a person who has taken on a split personality (MPD) to hide from horrible acts he has committed. The lead guitar work and chorus section are as good as it gets, very memorable. Nice clean, upfront vocals.

2) Caroline - Epic Rock song about finding a former love living on the streets. One of the most dynamic songs on the entire Cd. The instrumentation throughout is amazing. Nice moody vocal introspective in the verses, which then give way to an exploding chorus section (ala 90's Grunge). The frantic build up in the solo section is another nice touch. As always, the Foxman does an excellent job of getting into the character of the song and selling the drama.

3) Dead Men Tell No Tales - Folk/Rock song about the demise of a corrupt governor. The storyline is exceptional and you kind of get the feeling that the Foxman is playing the role of a reporter who is covering the story, yet is somewhat reluctant to say what he really thinks happened.

4) Break a Leg - A Punk Rock anthem about overcoming fears. No doubt about it, this song is a classic with big time hit song potential. Don't go at it lightly, crank up the volume and love it.

5) Forget About It - This is a acoustic song about a relationship gone bad. The lyrics and emotional vocal approach will quickly win you over and tug at your heart strings. Just goes to prove that sometimes the most effective songs are the simple ones that everyone can relate to. Foxman does an excellent job of capturing a mood and sharing it with everyone.

6) Spreadin The News - Didn't see this one coming, talk about a complete 180. "Spreadin The News" is a fun Pop song about getting married. There are moments throughout the song that bring to mind old classic Hollywood movies (ex. Humphrey Bogart saying "here's looking at you kid" in Casablanca). It's a very fun song that will have everyone raising their glasses at the end .... you'll see what I mean.

7) The Freaks Waltz - Just when you think you have this guy pigeon holed he steps up and throws you another curveball. Talk about a classic, well thought out, creative instrumental. My first impression of this song was that it belongs somewhere in the soundtrack for one of The Godfather movies. Then come the change sections, which are unbeatable and freakishly hilarious (footsteps, girl screaming, mad cap laughter, wind chimes, etc). The cast of "Dancing With The Stars" would have a blast with this one.

8) Head On A Stick - This song will quickly be a favorite for fans of the macabre. As best I can tell the Foxman is literally talking to a head on a stick and assessing the damage/carnage that is all around, which creates a very funny scenario. It takes a lot of lyrical prowess to pull off a song like this and the Foxman steps up and delivers. The musicianship, as always, is exceptional. Perfect blend of gore and humor. Due to the subject matter of this song it has been listed as having explicit lyrics, but it is done in such a playful way that I doubt most people will mind.

9) House Of Cards - BAM!!! This is one of the heaviest tunes on the entire Cd (almost falls into the Metal category). The Metallica-esque intro is excellent and sets the stage well for the entire song. Everything about this tune kicks ass!! As best I call tell, the theme of the song is the dangers of gambling. The lead character does run into some bad luck (the dead mans hand) and he ultimately goes postal and shoots up the cards. The chorus section is a classic. Due to the graphic nature of the lyrics and references to guns and shooting, this song has been listed as having explicit lyrics.

10) Ne'er Do Well - Once again, another complete 180. The Foxman is a very clever songwriter who always keeps you guessing. This song may very well be the best one on the entire Cd and that says a lot. It is a Folkish/Rockabilly song about a vagrant/tramp/ne'er do well (short for never do well) who is walking the crossroads and questioning his faith. The lyrics are as good as it gets and I guarantee you will love this song from start to finish.

11) Jingle Bells - LOL, the Foxman does Christmas songs too. The song was originally written by James Lord Pierpont in 1857 and was titled "One Horse Open Sleigh". What is unique about this version of the song is that the Foxman has chosen to use a laid back folkish approach that focuses just as much attention on the storyline/verses as it does on the renowned chorus section. He has even gone so far as to alter some of the lyrics so that the storyline is easier to follow and a bit more modern. The break sections between the choruses and verses are perfect. The song has an excellent flow from start to finish.

12) Same Old Troubles - (aka The Lucky Voodoo Song). This is one of the Foxmans signature songs. It originally appeared as track #3 on his "Crazy Like A Fox" Cd (2010). It features a big band New Orleans vibe (trumpet and trombones), an unforgettable groove and exceptional lyrics/vocals. This tune is vintage Foxman at his finest and I guarantee it will put a smile to your face. In voodoo-ology the black pin is used to dispel negativity.

13) So Noble Kind - From lucky voodoo to a chilling ballad. "So Noble Kind" is a haunting classic about vampiric and royal bloodlines merging. The setting seems to take place in a cemetery where a victim of royal lineage has been bitten and is leaving her human life behind and awakening to a life of immortality. The song is sung from the perspective of the vampire who has bitten her and is patiently awaiting her arrival. This song also works as the perfect prequel for "Sweet Adelaide"

14) Sweet Adelaide - This is it, every great Cd has its centerpiece and "Sweet Adelaide" is as good as it gets. This song was originally released as track #5 on the "Crazy Like a Fox" Cd. After writing "So Noble Kind" the Foxman knew that it had to be a part of the new release as well. It is a haunting love song about the loss of a loved one. A video for this song was filmed and released in 2011 and is a must see. Very chilling, perfect cinema, vintage Foxman at his finest.

15) Dance With The Devil - Got to love that the Foxman chose to end the Cd with a rocker. In a sense, this song acts as the follow up to the Cd's first track "Guilty". The lyrics/vocals suggest that the character is tormented and in fear of facing his final judgement. The lead guitar work in this song is excellent. Crank it up!!

Me encanto este cd ,los tengo todos los cuatro y en una ocasión ,logre ver y escuchar esas 9 canciones de las que tanto me hablas. Voy a volver a intentarlo, pero por mi tumor cerebral (ya el segundo) me cuesta aveces volver donde fui capaz de hacerlo. Un abrazo . Mari
I loved this CD, I have all the four once, got to see and hear those nine songs that speak both me. I'll try again, but my brain tumor (and the second) sometimes costs me back where I was able to. A hug. Mari
