“Mesh the grunge fried sound of Neil Young and Crazy Horse with Nick Cave at his most feral and temestuous, and you have an indication of the sonic territory this Vancouver-based group alights on. Prepare for scorch marks on the soul at every listen of this, their fourth album.”UK’s Daily Mirror
“Group choruses/hollerbacks to a slow ‘n’ grooved-up swing, set for your local indie blues joint.”Stereogum
“What Bazan (Pedro The Lion) would sound like if catchiness was a priority.”The Glorious Hum
