While I have never been a huge follower of Austin’s Voxtrot, this six-song EP by keyboardist and guitarist Jared Van Fleet is irresistible. Recording under the nom de plume Sparrow House, Van Fleet works the same hushed muse as many a Drunkard favorite posted on these pages in the past. I have only had this EP in my hands for a number of days, but it has quickly become a favorite. Based on the strength of this effort alone I may need to, ahem, re-visit Voxtrot’s catalog.
