Voxhaul Broadcast's strength is pushing multiple stylistic and emotional buttons without succumbing to lowest-common-denominator anonymity. Though the Silver Lake (via Orange County) quartet indulge in everything from twinkly goth guitars and a Morrissey-esque sense of classic storytelling to Lennon-McCartney melodic instincts and loose-hipped soul, they still sound coherent of vision and mission. It really helps that, whatever genre alley VB may wander, frontfella David Dennis always sounds like a strutting, rather poetic dandy who, however self-aware, is consistently sincere. This is never more evident than in Voxhaul Broadcast's celebratory, in-the-moment live sets.
