"Flushed with crunchy guitars, galloping fuzz bass, and psych-fried organ, the bustling [sound] blatantly screams, "Garage rock revival!" even as the music also finds the outfit tapping into its hardcore and no-wave influences." [Chris Sabbath]
"Smothered in a scratchy wool blanket of sound Columbus, Ohio's PSYCHEDELIC HORSESHIT have a basis of something warm deep down in it's root but may smell musty or of mothballs as well making you all itchy when all you wanted to do was zone out." [Smashin Transistors]
(Portland's) Little Claw crawl and bite like a wild thing, they understand the secret totemic power of the tribal stomping drone, and transmit it through their flesh and blood turned music in the same way in which the Velvet Underground did from the secret tower of darkness gleaming above the labyrinths of Gotham, or Sun City Girls and Indian Jewelry do spinning lost in circular deserts where they befriend rattlesnakes and coyotes.
From somewhere in northern Wisconsin, performing an acoustic set tonight. "I for one am excited to hear more of a music that has dark, squalid and-bluesy streaks walking along in a gelid path of unidentifiable stray sounds both hard and cushioning. It is music oddly familiar enough to walk around in immediately upon hearing, without cracking your head in the various alien-rotating rooms built by the feel to it. Yes, you can walk inside music if you want to." [Perfect Sound Forever]
