WHO: Vox & The Hound

WHAT: dapper and disheveled orchestral pop and campfire sing-along anthems

Vox & The Hound's self-described "Western" influence is more spaghetti than country, with composer Ennio Morricone cited as inspiration. The band shares Morricone's meticulous dedication to composition — those perfectly placed slinky guitar lines and shuffling timpani are not unlike the detailed spreadsheets the band uses as reference while recording its full-length debut Courage, out Nov. 30. The band (Leo DeJesus, Rory Callais, Andrew Jarman, Eric Rogers and Daniel Ray) "planned it out to a T," Ray says. The band's classically trained ears have a knack for heart-hugging harmonies and locked-in offbeat pop grooves. — Woodward
