“On the dimly lit stage of Theatre 80, a band of folk musicians dives into traditional gospel song “John the Revelator” while a hellfire-and-brimstone baptism takes place ... this dark social commentary is best expressed through the use of American roots music scattered throughout the drama, including spiritual-style songs and traditional(s).”
“This production does claim a stirring bluegrass band and a song list drawing on terrific traditional ballads, and original ones, by Elizabeth Chaney and Christopher Peifer.”
“A plethora of haunting songs that are steeped in a willful acceptance of death and futility ... carry deep wellsprings of strength and darkness that the play discovers through a well-controlled atmospheric staging.”
“Dark Hollow adds a Southern Appalachian twang and an infusion of traditional mountain music performed by supremely skilled musicians ... with music direction by Christopher Peifer and performed by a disciplined and talented cast, the sure, deliberate pace accretes the palpable inevitability of a classic tragedy of grave consequence. It's a stunning and serious pleasure.”
“Spirited, persuasive playing, especially on the horn-filled "Night Flies", the piano-driven killer "Secrets and Whispers" ... this debut is high-energy, soul-infected music you can go wild to.”
“I went home, put this LP on the Victrola, and was in rock 'n' roll ecstasy enjoying the best new Stones album the Stones never made. Jaggerian jaggings with L.E.S. track marks murking up the madness makes for some serious hot, cool shit.”
“Tight as a vintage Robert Mitchum noir thriller. Same sorta swagger and cocksure deliverance. Timeless. Another Saturday Night’s debut album is your ticket to gut level decadent rock’n’roll that actually oozes with cojones and heart.”
“Whiskey scented riffs, as if from the breath of Keith Richards … a more than recommendable record for Saturday nights.”
“These songs are sassy full of bare knuckle truth. Like a locked groove record, rock and/or roll will never stop... The beast is too unruly now, it can only be shuffled around and kept at bay, but with band like Another Saturday Night you can hear an example of how the battle still rages.”
“... pure American rock n roll, maybe typically New York if you're listening to the Dolls or the Fleshtones. The songwriting is also timeless, simple, raw and energetic Garage Rock with bg vocals, just like you want it ... these songs whet your appetite for more.”
“New York’s Slow Gold Zebra label sent us a whole bundle of vinyl joy this issue ... offered a comforting indication that there’s still some sleaze strung out on the streets of the cleaned up Big Apple.”
"Seven inches of vinyl ... Another Saturday Night's latest bar room rocker ... Howlin' guitars and steady rollin' tunes. Grab a PBR and bring on the night."
"Rolling Stones jangle and swagger. Think "Brown Sugar."
"Best of 2008 / 2010"
“Gorgeous Machines are ahead of the wannabe Californian desert rock posers, they share the warm, relaxing tones of Yawning Man. The Brooklyn quartet’s debut is likely to be filled alongside the tags of ‘cinematic desert grooves’, as each track is dunked in reverb and delay, while each riff is carefully crafted – cyclical and massaged.”
“NYC's Heavy Creatures have developed their own special blend of organic rock reliant on viscous grooves and a sweeping ethereal spirit showcased on the quartet's latest eight-track excursion, The Cymbal and the Skull ...”
“The music ... is heavy. It chuggs along beneath grandly gesturing keyboard and guitar lines while toying with the blues and psychedelic music so cleverly you're hard pressed to assign them a genre. These creatures understand the meaning of "momentum" and "build" and "crescendo" so well ...”
“I've been really digging this band Heavy Creatures lately. I love their artwork, I love their taste in guitars, I love the sound of their records, but most of all, I LOVE their songs.”
“These guys had my head bobbin' and toe tappin' as they tore through an assemblage of nifty little riffs, plus their bassist (Christopher Peifer) was popping off some supercool John Paul Jones-esque melodies pretty much the whole way through ...”
“Through frequent tempo changes, they challenge their audience while insistently commanding their attention at the same time. Fans can look forward to seeing them as more of a presence on the music scene this year.”
“NYC's SIR take the power of punk and the glitz of Queen and come up with a potpourri of rock music chock full o' sass and attitude. This 12 track CD includes some kick ass originals with some off beat covers to create a really solid offering.”
