“The Lynguistic Civilians took command of the stage in a way that couldn’t be ignored, glowing among a sea of flashing lights. The crowd showed an overwhelming amount of love and support for these talented musicians as they rocked Metronome into the night with their catchy beats and mesmerizing hooks. ”
“This super-group is putting Burlington, Vermont on the map with their innovative, energetic hip hop. In the past year they’ve been named Best Vermont Hip Hop and Best Vermont Unsigned Band by Seven Days and were crowned 2011’s I Make Music champions.”
"They’ve shot videos for both of the tunes “Welcome Everybody” and “Paint it Red” and both songs exude the Civilians funky, party vibe. “Welcome Everybody”, the lead single off the EP, sees the emcees trading off boasts of hip hop fandom, name-dropping everyone from Biggie to the pre-Fergie Black Eyed Peas over a lilting, soul-sampling, funked-up groove. “Paint it Red” is a straightforward party anthem about drowning your sorrows in good times, good friends, and good tequila."
"Lynguistic Civilians are big supporters of the local Burlington music scene, no matter the genre. While they love the way the hip hop scene has grown here, and shout out other local acts such as the Aztexts, Monty promises that the Civilians will support, “Any band that’s doing their thing.” As a diverse crew of emcees, they have diverse tastes and diverse musical backgrounds, all of which comes together in their music."
“They are a rising force in the local hip-hop scene, a synergized sextet that has skipped past the early steps on the game board and landed squarely on “Arrived.””
"Taking in even one of these acts would have been well worth the ticket price. Among the standouts were The Lynguistic Civilians – who command the microphone and stage like they own it. A large and diverse group, each member comes together to form one tight group of lynguists. The group also represented with the only female performer of the night, LC, whose flow rivals that of Lil’ Kim."
