Album Notes
With the spirit of Neil Young and the density of early Radiohead, Moxie Motive shook and shocked the Subterranean crowd this past weekend ... Strong rhythms and power stop and starts are their bread and butter, but it's the additional mixture of intricate delicacy of Moxie Motive's softer songs that keeps this band separate from many of their peers ... Moxie Motive is about to emerge as another bright light shining from the heart of the Midwest metropolis."
Chad Cheathem, The Crutch

"Moxie Motive can range from glisteny pop to restrained, violin-tinged acoustic moments, but it's frontman Matt Duhaime's rough-hewn vocals that really give the music its character."

I was just starting to wonder if the Chicago band Moxie Motive had any (moxie that is)...when about 2 minutes into their song "Flush Of Hearts" I had my answer when a blast of Pixie-esque guitar noise erupted. The band's debut ep has just been released.
Moxie Motive have been around in some form or another since 2005. They've had their fair share of great opening opportunities including dates with Cold War Kids and Tapes `n Tapes.

This album culminates all the best parts of what these kids do in their live shows. One of my favorites.
