Favorite Blue Mic: Yeti
"I couldn't imagine a better sounding/ easy to use microphone than the Yeti. Just plug in and play. On the road, I'm recording using Garageband in peoples living rooms/ bathrooms/kitchens, and I haven't had any trouble whatsoever. After getting back home I actually had a couple people ask me what studio I went to record, and they were amazed to hear that I did it at home on a laptop with the Yeti Mic."

Record Label: New West Records
Buxton, a five piece folk-rock ensemble from Houston, TX, is excited to announce that their New West Records debut album Nothing Here Seems Strange will be released January 31, 2012. A limited edition 7- inch is currently available featuring the album's first single "Boy of Nine". Buxton's music is a study in contrasts: rock and folk, subtle yet eccentric, lush harmonies over prickly guitar. Buxton, who are coming off a strong east coast tour including a sold out CMJ show, will hit the road once again bringing their explosive, folk-based rock songs to West Coast cities including San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles where they will play a benefit show for the non-profit 826LA. The band then heads to NYC for a special event at the Gramercy Theater in support of the non-profit Art Start Organization.
Buxton's fusion of lovely harmonies, jarring explosions of energy and meticulously applied instrumentation is led by Sergio Trevino on Vocals/Guitar with Jason Willis on lead Guitar/Mandolin, Chris Wise on Bass Guitar, Justin Terrell on Drums and Austin Sepulvado on Guitar/Vocals. Hayley Barnes often joins the group on keyboard and harmony vocals. The band, with two self-released albums, is already garnering critical praise with the Houston Press declaring "Simply put, these guys are getting ridiculously good."
