Lloyd's Garage / Press

"Move over White Stripes, Lloyd’s Garage is in the house. This kickass duo from Napa knows how to raise the roof. One guitar, one very basic drum kit, and no shortage of sound or great music which sticks to the basics. This is a musical renaissance that is more than welcome at a time when popular music is all about theatrics and special effects. Remembering rock of days gone by, such as early Kinks, and even Led Zeppelin will give the seasoned listener a chill down their spine when you hear Seth and Lloyd bang out their great rock songs. With lyrics like”… No time for sweet talking … you’re gonna hate me tomorrow…”, why Robert Plant himself could not have penned better lyrics. With the three right chords, crisp vocals and real drum playing, it was impossible to sit still even after a long day at work. Just as E=MC2, Lloyd’s Garage have a formula for real rock music which is talent, plus energy, plus sticking to the basics."

“It’s always cool when we get to highlight a band fresh off their debut and just beginning to pick up steam. So this week is a particularly special week for yours truly as I get to introduce you all to Lloyd’s Garage, a band out of California with a surprisingly defined sound and some pretty promising aspirations... Overall From the Comfort of Your Home is an extremely promising beginning for the band. While the territory isn’t uncharted the manner in which the territory is covered is what makes the album worth checking out. Lloyd’s Garage is a duo with a unique ability to cover a caveat of sounds and styles without losing anything in the process. Something that even the modern legends like The Black Keys and The White Stripes had to work several years and put out several albums to attain. With any luck the duo will take this skill, find their stride, and gain all the attention they deserve. Definitely recommended.”

“Playing songs off of their debut album, From The Comfort of Your Home, Lloyd’s Garage demonstrated a command of tempo changes, catchy melodies, and the stage presence necessary to pull off such energetic material with just two people.”

"Literally originating from the recesses of drummer Lloyd Llewelyn’s garage, this force of ’60s inspired garage-rock evokes a raw yet sophisticated sound that strongly resonates with a palpable energy, adamance, and polished songwriting that is hard to ignore..."

"This group is good, old-fashioned rock and roll, heavy on the layered, fuzz-box/acoustic sound of the sixties but still able to put a modern, alternative spin on the old-school rock."

“A "stripped-down rock duo" their "minimalist two-piece approach is refreshing and their southern-fried sound has way more life than your favorite emo band or euro-electronic new wave rehash. Serious rock, broken down to the bare essentials...”
