"This is a band to watch. A new Outlaw Country. This is not Texas Charts or Nashville West, this is The Nashville Windy City Sound."
"[An] unsigned country-rock band from Chicago...thier smart catchy confessionals will surely appeal to fans of the Band as much as Jack Johnson and Neko Case."
"Listening to the August is like listening to old Johnny Cash tunes on modern radio: The sound is nostalgic-country complete with its own special twang, but it carries with it a folksy storytelling value that contemporary mainstream rock can't maintain."
"Thistle, Sparrow and the Tall, Tall Grass ... a breezy brand of melodic country, reflects these naturalistic roots, with its collection of casually swinging tunes."
