Last Nighters / Press

“Bunch of dudes live in the same host, listen to the same records, and jam out a lot. Add those ingredients, a healthy appreciation for a pop hook, and you've got Animal Room, the debut from upstarts the Last Nighters. Recorded, mixed, and released by the band, it's the kind of record that sounds gone over a hundred times, streamlined for maximum punch (see the soaring "Your Mind Is An Airplane" for proof). You don't get debuts much stronger than this.”

“A remarkably cohesive whole with parts born in disparate locales, Last Nighters is a San Antonio band with a far more fully realized sound that you'd expect from a group that just released their debut album. Boasting a rousing and never wasteful or overdone album — Animal Room, released this summer -- the band has a wildly emotive and irresistibly transfixing live show. A mix of sincerity, tight musical execution, and balls: the live incarnation of their twangy-jangly indie pop-rock crackles with youthful energy and surplus self-mastery. Last Nighters have a promising penchant for arresting, almost Americana feeling indie rock songs with pop essences. They also know how to use their strengths — especially, but not only, Fernández' thick and whiskeyed voice — to the fullest. All this, plus a live mojo that makes it hard to keep from gyrating when Fernández launches into the heady chorus on "The Borough," their most gigantic song.”

“Animal Room, the debut LP by San Antonio’s Last Nighters, plays like something of a concise history of modern Southern indie music. From blues to pop to country twang and indie-rock bluster, Last Nighters are children of the wide-open Texas night — unafraid to be exuberant or to dress like their heroes when the time is right. A diverse and bite-sized introduction, highlights from Animal Room include the sultry almost-ballad “Very Direct,” the jam band sing-along “Your Mind is an Airplane,” and (my favorite) the vehemently stomping crowd-shy lament “The Borough.””
