Fox Loco Phantom – Shadow Review

I started listening to Fox Loco Phantom purely based on the fact that it was rock and the name of the band. Seven songs later, I find one of the most hyper drummers and a great EP.

Shadow is Japanese rock and garage punk combined into a purely excellent package. Being a drummer myself, I do spend a good amount of time listening to how the drum kit functions behind the songs and in the case of Fox Loco Phantom; I am awed at the speed of the playing.

The band has both a throwback garage punk sound with fiendishly catchy tracks. Shadow is another example of how Japanese rock flows through a lot of different types of music.

Since this was released in 2010, there’s a good chance that Fox Loco Phantom will only get better with time.
