Previous Press:
"Bizarre mountain rock, great songs with an atypical guitar style." ~ LA Weekly

"The sparse, can-kicking stroll of the title track is warmed up further by some Wurly and O'Neill's double-tracked vocals that do indeed simmer with the vibe of a lonely cabin singalong waiting to happen." - CMJ

"Sounds like Doc Boggs, Sonic Youth, and JJ Cale stuck in a basement together.” ~ The Raven Gazette

“Uniquely energized contemporary mountain music and electric old time stomp rock.” ~ L Magazine
