Foxing [August 2015]

The first time I heard Foxing was on a flight back to the UK from the States a year or so ago. Night flights always go so slowly and so I’d loaded an iPod with new music and indulged for eight hours. “The Albatross” is an outstanding piece of work. It’s haunting, emotional and was […]
