So we received some love from NPR's "second stage". I think it's an on-line (podcast-able) only type deal.

Here's what they had to say about the new album:, October 21, 2008:

Like a Fox is a psychedelic rock band based in Philadelphia and founded in 2004 by former Lenola singer Jay Laughlin. After gathering four other musicians for the group, including ex-Lenola guitarist Dave Grubb, Like a Fox released its self-titled debut album in 2006, and is set to release Where's My Golden Arm? at the end of this month.

Where's My Golden Arm? opens with "A Feeling That Launched a Thousand Wars," and, like much of the album, the track features earnestly sung vocals interspersed with moments of soaring and rocking electric guitar. A few songs later, the head-bopping, hand-clapping "Night Person" struts along and begs to be danced to, while the melodic "Gold" is a gorgeous, synth-driven piece.

Overall, Where's My Golden Arm? is a carefree 40 minutes of music. Although Laughlin's boyish voice can begin to sound less charming and a bit whinier halfway through the record, Like a Fox's latest could be ideal for those craving a lighthearted listen.
