There are few tastemakers left in this country, but when they chat about your band it means something. When legendary KCRW DJ Nic Harcourt was asked about unsigned LA rock group, Voxhaul Broadcast, this is what he had to say: “The live shows reflect the passion that has etched them a reputation as one of SoCal’s best live bands… Musical influences range from classic soul to Manchester swagger to the grit rock of the Pixies. Marry this with smart but unpretentious lyrics and some catchy beats, and there’s something seriously going on here.” Obviously I was intrigued, and when I downloaded the album, I realized that Nic was not just fluffing for some free tickets. I had a chance to chat with VB, as part of our “15 Questions With” series.
