“The quintet delivered an intriguing set of quirky indie rock that owed much to Television (yelping Tom Verlaine-esuqe vocals? Check. Angular guitar solos? Check.) and plain old television, with songs dedicated to small-screen icons like Tony Danza and "Doogie Howser."”

Jonathan Perry - Boston Globe

“Founder’s Brewery Tap Room was packed last night as Alexis and grRoPoLis shared a CD release with support from The Total Blam Blams and Night Toucher. grRoPoLis enjoyed a pretty enthusiastic reaction (they seem to have quite a good following). Go to the Link for Photo coverage of the whole night!”

“Inventive Grand Rapids rock band grrRoPoLis and pop-electronica duo Alexis have paired up for an unusual, joint CD-release party at Founders Brewing Co. on Thursday. It's an eclectic mix of styles to be sure: grrRoPoLis ranges from an indie-rock vibe to punk to experimental strains (which you can listen to here), while Alexis has created a stir around town with its sweet, danceable synth-pop. Michael Cunningham from grrRoPoLis, which unveils its latest album, "Boof," amid video projection, jokes that the show will "match couples for life, end pithy squabbles, make babies in people's minds, hearts and noses. It'll be full-on musical chaos ... This show is going to be so boofing booftacular that you will leave with a strange happy smile." ”

“Michael Cunningham, Dustin Anderson, Ryan Eardley and Eric Deacon of Grand Rapids rock band grrRoPoLis unabashedly cite and embrace their influences: Classic rock, punk, pop, hip-hop. Neil Young, Pixies, Big Daddy Kane, Ween, Nick Cave, Talking Heads, White Stripes. Consequently, the inventive band's latest album, “Boof,” (think Batman's “Pow” and “Bam” sound effects) takes a little bit here and a little bit there to create a singularly rich, psychedelic and sometimes experimental form of rock. Boofy, indeed. 'Sound Check' today explores the track, “Henweigh,” for your listening pleasure. ”

“grrRoPoLis “Boof” The music: Welcome to the most interesting grrRoPoLis project yet and one of 2011’s best local releases. This insanely creative bunch uncorks a rock tour de force: Think edgy Modest Mouse on steroids taking a psychedelic voyage to visit the Pixies. Or something. It makes for one fine, unpredictable trip. They play a CD-release show with Alexis on April 7 at Founders Brewing. Get it: After April 7 at Vertigo Music, grrropolis.com. ”
