  1. Much like The World Is A Beautiful Place... and their new record Harmlessness, Foxing have set a new standard with Dealer not just for emo, but for indie and alternative rock across the board.

    Every moment on Dealer feels intentional, and as a result, gorgeous. [Nov 2015, p.96]

    There are so many moments of catharsis despite a few songs feeling repetitive or filler. It's bold, jammed with raw emotion and to top that, brutally honest.

    The Albatross darted fitfully and stretched out in all directions, while Dealer pulls all of Foxing's influences inward. Inverting his typical role of making burly post-rock bands sound delicate, producer Matt Bayles (Isis, Caspian) boosts Foxing's fragility.

    Atmos aplenty then, but more melodies like Magdalene's would be nice. [Dec 2015, p.94]

    From the meandering opener, Weave, it's a record that's entirely absorbing. [31 Oct 2015, p.54]

    Absolutely immense. I loved these guys back when The Albatross first came out and I absolutely loved that album. Listened to it over and overAbsolutely immense. I loved these guys back when The Albatross first came out and I absolutely loved that album. Listened to it over and over again. I was so excited to find that they had a new album coming out. The first couple singles released showed they had matured and mellowed out. It sounded better. I'm just going to say after listening to this album, it is amazing! It's heavier (lyrically) than The Albatross but more polished and less raw. Its soundscapes sound like a walk through a moonlit trail. This is by far their best album, and it's a toss up for my AOTY (I figured my AOTY was pretty assured, but now this album may have stolen it). Enjoy the album as a whole but if you just wanna sample some songs, I suggest "Indica" and "Redwoods". Incredible album! Expand
