Pushboxer is a band out of Oxford that agrees on me with their influences: The National and Interpol. I’d even throw an extra one in, The Cure, if only because Pushboxer’s new single, Pictures, reminds me so much of them. If you’re into the gloomier side of rock music, these guys should be right up your alley. In otherwise unrelated news, keep an eye peeled for my best of ’08 picks, which are more encompassing than the version Ant did a while back. Stay tuned!
