Clever Girl 02:21
You put in your time, now get to the back of the line The ceilings kinda low in this place, but don’t worry cause they call it a safe space Because you They got you where they want you now, baby you Does it feel like their hands are on your throat …because you You got what they want and Don’t let em’ fuck it up, don’t let ‘em silence you. Why can’t you just smile While they tell you how to do your shit better? Well look at your girl isn’t that cute you try to do it like the boys well aren’t you clever Because you They got you where they want you now, baby you Does it feel like their hand are on your throat …because You – You got what they want and Don’t let em’ fuck it up, don’t let ‘em silence you. Cause if you tell me one more time I’m good for a girl and try to touch my shit I might have to break your fingers, I don’t really care and it’s not my problem just because your little dick is threatened by my gender. Because you They got you where they want you now, baby you Does it feel like their hand are on your throat …because You – you got this, you know you got this, you got it ‘cause you earned it.

As a child pickin’ flower in the woods But little girls they never stay that good Dressed in red all young and wet Keep runnin’ girl they’re not done with you yet…You’re gunna Wish you were dead x4 There’s a full moon out tonight Yellow eyes burnin’ so bright Showin’ teeth, lickin’ wounds Did it feel just like you thought it would? ….Because This is then end x4 This is the end x3 You’re gunna wish you were dead

Hiawatha 03:27
Follow me down to the water Sink to the bottom like a Baptist daughter Feel the water wash you clean It’s not as late as it seems Let me tell you ‘bout Hiawatha The Iroquois nation an it’s father See the blood run into the Earth Watch him bleed, watch him hurt – watch him hurt Ground shakes under locomotive Move a nation on the backs of natives Those who toil in the Earth are god’s own people if they’re 36 30 North

I can’t sleep What makes the floor creak Baby, I can’t sleep I know there’s something wrong with me What’s inside of my mind It’s not right I’m wide awake I’m wide awake Never go to sleep, Never count sheep, Never go to sleep, Never count sheep Beads of sweat run down my face Even in my dreams I’m always running in place So get your hand up off of me ‘Cause I can’t sleep ‘Cause baby, I can’t sleep Never go to sleep, Never count sheep, Never go to sleep, Never count sheep I can’t sleep What makes the floor creak Baby, I can’t sleep I know theres something wrong with me What’s inside of my mind It’s not right I’m wide awake I’m wide awake Beads of sweat run down my face Even in my dreams I’m always running in place So get your hand up off of me ‘Cause I can’t sleep ‘Cause baby, I can’t sleep

Nasty Woman 02:33
We want a girl with certain motivations A real eye on domestication Nobody respects you like I do When you give up and just do nothing The patriarchy needs it so just go ahead any try to smash it They love it when we fight each other, time is now we have to grasp it But I hear you’re famous so just try and grab it But watch out this pussy will bite you back We want a girl who poised and knows her roll Shows some leg and wears those tight clothes Nobody respects you like I do When you give up and just do nothing The patriarchy needs it so just go ahead any try to smash it They love it when we fight each other, time is now we have to grasp it But I hear you’re famous so just try and grab it But watch out this pussy will bite you back

I believe, I believe, I believe In the atom and the vaccine I believe, I believe, I believe In Science 6000 years ago god plucked a rib from Adam, made a girl Said “get your asses on a boat, ‘cause I’m about to flood the world.” And every part of that is literal, that’s critical – ‘cause when they ask how you know, just tell ‘em that “I told you so.” I believe, I believe, I believe In research/rationality I believe, I believe, I believe In Science 6000 years ago god plucked a rib from Adam, made a girl Said “get your asses on a boat, ‘casue I’m about to flood the world.” And every part of that is literal, that’s critical – ‘cause when they ask how you know, just tell ‘em that “I told you so.”

Went for a walk the other day Bystanders turned and looked away I am not sheep I am not thief No need to stand so close to me I am not standing here, I am not standing here, I am not standing here, don’t you see me standing here Late at night I walk alone You follow me when I go home I am not nice I’m not your vice No need to stand so close to me I am not standing here, I am not standing here, I am not standing here, don’t you see me standing here

I thought you were Everything I ever wanted The rise and the fall The Earth turn the wolf calls You had it all The crest and wave churnin’ I’ve come undone I can see the sun burnin’ When the moon don’t bring the tide any more You are the tide I am the lonely moon You can’t be held No matter how much I want you I rise alone You crash to a foreign shore You can’t be had And I just can’t take it any…. When the moon don’t bring the tide anymore

about

Witchy, twitchy and full of attitude, Fox Face is a fog-swirling, moonlit night where nothing’s as it seems. Blink, and they answer the question you didn’t even know you had. Both realized and reckless, Fox Face is an eerie musical force that would be just as much at ease holding a seance on a stormy, nighttime beach as they would be throwing a rager in a dark, beer-soaked basement bar.

Lead guitarist and vocalist Lindsay DeGroot is as comfortable in a Riot Grrrl shout in “(What You’re) Good For” as she is in the snarl of “I Believe In Science”, ambidextrously managing both pissed off and creepy, the words “I believe / In research/rationality” twisting like knives into her enemies. Fox Face’s explicitly feminist lyrics are undeniably bolstered by no-bullshit politics and inspired by the Book of the Dead and The Craft.

Spoil + Destroy is Fox Face’s first record for Dirtnap, recorded by Kyle “Motor” Urban at MotorCo Studio in Madison, WI, using an all-analog Ampex MM-1100 23" 16-Track recorder. Urban also recorded the band’s debut Teen Wiccan 7". DeGroot leads this storm of sound, with bandmates Lydia Washechek (guitar, vocals), Mary Joy (bass, vocals) and Christopher Capelle (drums) playing countless furiously energetic sets in their hometown of Milwaukee, WI, and beyond.

On the tongue in cheek Spoil + Destroy, Fox Face alternates between Sabbath-y vs. searing guitars (“Clever Girl”), surf-rock (“(What You’re) Good For”) and the creeped-out, organ-laced sonic seance of “The Moon and the Tide”. That realized and reckless attitude hangs hard on the vocals of everyone throughout, echoing the spirit of Kathleen Hanna and Neighborhood Brats’ Jenny Angelillo. This is what would happen if the Shivvers’ Jill Kossoris got pissed off and started plotting revenge on the date who didn’t call her back on the “teen line”, sitting “by the phone waiting for your ring”.

Fed up, Fox Face takes their own issues to hand, whether battling anti-feminist attitudes, panic attacks or the fear of the earthly unknown. Spaghetti Western styles intermingle with punk & roll and goth, making for a bubbling pot of riled-up, creeptastic tales, where the environs are trepidatious, dark and frustrating, yet you feel you can battle your way out. “You—you got this, you know you got this, you got it ‘cause you earned it.”

about

Fox Face Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Fox Face is socially conscious but, more important, it’s good rock ‘n’ roll that’s hard to shoehorn neatly into a specific subgenre or scene. While it’s on Dirtnap it’s also something of an outlier. The songs feature a lot of dynamic shifts, unpredictable song structures, and actual singing. There’s a wide range of emotion that makes the overall feel more personal and relatable. ... more
