Entertainment Weekly debuted Buxton’s self-titled track off their album, Half A Native. Homegrown in Houston, Buxton rose to local fame for being an idiosyncratic blues-rock-psych counteraction to a largely hip-hop and country dominated Texas music scene. EW calls the forthcoming album a “blend of sugar-sweet hooks and honky tonk twang.” Half a Native, was the first time the band worked under the musical wing of producer Thom Monahan, (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, and Beachwood Sparks). Buxton created an album of masterfully crafted compositions tangled in personal poetic lyricism. EW called it “a hushed and intimate meditation on front man Sergio Trevino’s experience trying to connect his Mexican heritage with his involvement in a music scene that still skews lily white, backed up by cosmic slide guitar and a fingerpicked part on a suitably humble $30 guitar that Trevino picked up at a thrift store.”
