“Voted #1 local band at Sunfest 2013 (opened for Train) Click here to read the article: http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/countygrind/2013/04/top_5_best_local_acts_at_sunfest_2013.php?page=3”

“From the beginning, Raggy Monster, the album, traverses a clear narrative arc, starting with the mood-setting opener, "Baker's Dozen," an almost Dead Can Dance-like slab of atmospherics punctuated by wordless vocal trills from Duvall. That opens up to a middle movement that moves between classic, jangling indie rock a la Pavement ("Broken Jack") to Amanda Palmer-esque, Vaudevillian, piano-driven rock explosions ("Because of His").”

“Raggy Monster, a newish West Palm Beach-based coed act proudly waves the flag of indie rock. No complicated subgenres needed here -- these guys (and girl) do what they set out to do well. This is hooky, mostly guitar-driven melodic stuff augmented by the occasional piano flourish and male-female vocal interplay. The result is polished and catchy and deserves to be heard more.”

“Raggy Monster is the most creative, interesting band in South Florida.”
