Album

Oxford Collapse were an indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The members include Michael Pace on vocals & guitars, Dan Fetherston on drums and Adam Rizer on bass & vocals. Oxford Collapse first released a limited press self-titled EP for the HCR label in 2002. Shortly after they signed to Kanine Records, a label based in New York CityBrooklyn, where they released their first full-length album Some Wilderness in April 2004. This was followed by a remix of a track from the album titled Melting the. Oxford Collapse - Oxford Collapse.

While portraying themselves as an indie rock band, Oxford Collapse seems to be far more rooted in post-punk. Yes, all the late-nineties influences are plentiful in Bits, but it's impossible to deny that there are also hints of Against Me hidden sporadically. Bits isn't a brilliant album and through its course it accomplishes very little, and while there are not many moments that are as brilliant as The Birthday Wars, there are even fewer that are as painstakingly awful as Young Love Delivers,".

The straight dope: Recorded during the November 2007 sessions that eventually birthed our final album, BITS, these two songs represent a direction Oxford Collapse might've taken had we continued on our journey through the past a little while longer. Our take on Neil Young's Dance, Dance, Dance emphasizes the boom bap of the drums while leaving enough sawdust on the floor to flog a crazy horse, while The Caveat, informed by hours of listening to By-Tor and the Snowdog in the van, is our imagining of what Rush might sound like if they were less accom. Or consider a donation. Bits is an album like that an album of leading questions, inferences, sly suggestions buttressed by active eyebrows. This often-frantic trio from Brooklyn never quite get to where they want you to believe they're headed. Instead, they offer a snapshot in mid-stride, action photography with no particular context, arc, or closure. Like so many of their generic contemporaries, Oxford Collapse reside firmly in the moment. In some ways, they demonstrate succinctly why indie-rock is no longer tangential to mainstream pop music but rather runs parallel to it: both indie and pop are predicated on immediacy and feel, not on scope but on currency
