Philadelphia’s psychedelic-pop group Like a Fox is the adroit antidote for anyone over-saturated by the latest crop of pop divas, death metal heads, redundant rappers or whatever else has crippled your ears. Like a Fox’s sophomore release, Where’s My Golden Arm?, has a defined stance quite similar to the Flaming Lips or Gorkey’s Zygotic Mynci.

Despite dollops of noise-pop (“Time Stands Still”), retro indie rock (the Rentals-like “Heard the Shot”) and dissonant classic rock (Pink Floyd-esque “Just a Light Hit”), underneath the comprehensive production lies a tight pop punctuation. Frontman Jay Laughlin replicates Wayne Coyne’s Brian Wilson on acid vocal affectation on pop conception “A Feeling That Launched a Thousand Wars” and power-popping piece “Internal/External.”

Loner narrative “Night Person” and ear candy treat “Been Sitting Here” both offer archival, addictive hooks readymade for fans of Grandaddy or Super Furry Animals.

Where’s My Golden Arm? is currently available.
