Bus Stop Poets / Press

"The songwriting is exceptional as the band utilizes a complete and broad palette of styles to coney its message...The music is skillfully constructed and rich in emotional depth and mature themes, and has an approachable element that is very human and real."

““Tunes like Compromise and Supplemental Flair show sides of rootsy Americana to neo-rockabilly””

“The Bus Stop Poets’ self-titled EP is an odd thing – it’s like the happiest, chirpiest indie rock recorded since the early Travis single “Happy”. “(It’s A) Beautiful Day,” they sing on the opening song that bears that name and, you know what, they’re right. The suns might not be blasting in a Michigan summer manner, but things could be worse. Bless you, you jangly power-poppy, alt-rock prophets. You made me smile in the rain.”

"These Original Artists utilize elements of jazz, poetry, and blues to make acid-cool tunes that ease their way through your aural canals and into your soul like musical molasses."

““˜Beautiful Day’ exemplifies the crisp summertime garage rock of the early 2000′s. It’s Wilco-esque pop sensibility stamped down with Raconteurs crunch. Is the world ready for a summer pop-rock revival? It sounds like it.”

“If you’re growing tired of your standard playlist and tried and true iTunes library, now is the time to bust out of your musical rut. And what better way to do so than by checking out an up-and-coming local band?”

“The song opens with a great keyboard hook that’s used subtly later under the chorus. Bright, the chorus begs you to sing along.”

“Before even getting into the song, the name of the band is priceless. The boys from Detroit have combined a catchy hook with a retro pop sound reminiscent of early Weezer.”

““Beautiful Day” has the strength to be a real breakout song for the group. A straight-ahead rock song with a fair dose of 1960s pop, it will have you singing along in no time at all.”

"On “Beautiful Day” vocalist and guitarist John Mabilia channels Semisonic’s Dan Wilson, displaying impressive range and perfect pitch. The music has some interesting dynamic shifts to keep things fresh while always maintaining the warmth of the songs theme."
