ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
O x c a r T / P or t l a n d , O R r o c k

Channeling Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, The Sword, and Muse into their own psychedelic rock witches' brew, Portland Oregon's Oxcart's unique sound comes soaring from the depths of the Pacific Northwest. Often described as progressive, psychedelic, or alternative rock, the members of Oxcart have charted their own course musically for over 5 years.
Oxcart has released 2 studio albums to date, 2005's Sasquatch? and 2008's The Equation, with a third album, Beekeeper Constellation due out in May 2011. The band has played hundreds of shows and toured tirelessly throughout the Pacific Northwest for over 5 years. Additionally, Oxcart has received wide ranging FM and internet airplay and been reviewed locally, regionally, and nationally including being selected as Independisc records' 2009 album of the year. Highlights of Oxcart's 2008-2010 support for The Equation include opening slots for The Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Zepperella, amongst many other shows.
Oxcart's latest album, Beekeeper Constellation, picks up where their 2008 release The Equation left off, weaving an intricate array of careful songwriting into the band's heaviest and most mind bending work yet.
instrumentation:
Jason Baker - guitar, vocals
Eric Welder - bass
Matt Jones - keys, guitar, vocals
Alex Feletar - drums

What the critics have to say about Oxcart:

. ‘Wishes’ comes on like Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace gate crashing a studio session with Eagles of Death Metal in tow, heralded by fuzzed out lo-fi production. The more you listen to this record, the more you wish other musicians had this multiplicity. Its' a superb ensemble of songs which keeps you on tenterhooks throughout the course of the album. Rating: 8 out of 10 stars Whisperin and Hollerin 2/18/09

“……Genuinely unique, tracks Wishes and Office morph from psychedelic-jam to jazzy lounge sexiness, showcasing the bands ability to stir things up and do something angular…). Its like a rock opera; you cannot listen to this track for singles - its a piece of art, that lasts 13 tracks….” Awaken Music 2/5/09

“We start Side B (of The Equation) with the epic Desert. Again evoking Pink Floyd – Welcome To The Machine – This monster drum and guitar build accentuates the mantra of “Start a new life” with the knowledge of how hard it is - that heavy weights need to be lifted - and it just might not happen. An Angelic choir feeds the desperation into an ominous lumbering beast that the Gilmour-esque lead soars through (Classic Prog at it’s finest). "...(Oxcart) has crafted a Modern day Prog Rock Opera that has us name checking every pertinent
band/album from Prog’s glory years stirred with the Hammer of the Gods metal influences of the ages...one of the best Modern Metal Prog Rocks albums of this era. The Equation has been written…" Independisc 4/20/09
“…It's always nice to see a band that haven't been lobotomized by a major record label. The important point to make about this band is thier music is good.. very good !! …” Artist Launch 1/9/09
…”Shifting direction continually, Oxcart purveys anything from Stooges CBGB's heyday punk in 'Tetherball' to Metallica-like crashing riffs and scratchy space-out rock in 'Equation', drawing further influences from, Canadian band Our Lady Peace and Queens of the Stone Age. In a day of listening to sub-standard albums, a pedestal was duly pulled out for this piece of apocalyptic-rock…” Shout4Music / Ash Meikle 6/01/09


"Sasquatch?", the debut album by Oxcart, is an atmospheric slice of space rock, with layers that are dense and detailed.  On songs like 730 Days, they show a real skill in steeping their music in claustrophobic detachment, while cloaked within an intense sonic backdrop."- Matt Slesser, Pabst Blue Ribbon Live and Local 9/14/05

Oxcart "...paints soundscapes.... as inspired by Pink Floyd as Morphine."
The Oregonian 10/15/04
