“People are generally surprised when local singer-songwriter Erik Hanson tells them his band the Foxtails play country. Hanson isn’t exactly sporting a 10-gallon hat or wearing a rhinestone belt buckle. He looks more like he’d be in a slacker indie-rock band such as the Shins or Modest Mouse. Then, of course, Hanson feels compelled to explain what kind of country the Foxtails play. “None of us listen to new country. We like Gram Parsons. We like Hank Williams. We like Buck Owens and Johnny Cash—that kind of country,” Hanson says. As much as the members are directly influenced by the older country greats—and they do boast a mean pedal-steel guitar—their rootsy, twangy sound actually comes off a bit dreamy and melancholy. Furthermore, the band members all profess an interest in ’80s and ’90s shoegaze bands such as My Bloody Valentine and Swervedriver, and Hanson sings like a gentle Elliott Smith.”
