Not many bands would welcome, let alone withstand, comparisons to operatic rock masters like Queen and Meatloaf. Foxy Shazam can handle it.

Foxy's latest album is "The Church of Rock & Roll," which Paste says "shines in its ballsy rejection of modern pop stereotypes." With a maniacal performance style and frequently outrageous lyrics, the Cincinnati band, led by wild-throated singer Eric Nally and powered by pounding keys and a juggernaut rhythm section, has been anointed successors to the glam rock of David Bowie and the bombastic classic rock of Bad Company. No shoegazing or lyrical-emoting for these rock animals.

But as this Live at KDHX session proves, Foxy also knows how to unplug, cool off and deliver a set of catchy acoustic tunes -- complete with falsetto harmonies and flugelhorn.
