“Why does it sound like they've been doing this together for years? The sum of this band's parts is substantial, and they deliver the goods. Avengers-ish? 45 Grave-y? The vox by Jenny Don't pull the listener in, and the band, with Sam Henry on the throne, keep the listener in the back pocket. Dave Minick on bass & Dan Lowinger on guitar ace the stringwork. I even hear some Fred Cole-esque sounds in the guitars on track 1, "Too Young."
The songs are dark, occasionally gothy, always well-put-together monsters, and hearing "Window Shop For Love" performed with the song's original drummer, and filled out with this band's huge chops and captivating vox is a revelation. It might say more that their originals beat "WSFL" in a cage match, though.
Great songs, great playing, great nice guys & gurl... and yet another reason Portland is a zillion times cooler than it lets on in public.”
