"The Hex Tremors were one of the most thrilling bands ever to come out of this city, and their breakup last year almost brought this grown-ass man to tears. But Saint Sibian signals the musical resurrection of Tremors mastermind Scott Long. It’s a new band but thankfully he hasn’t jettisoned his powerful concept – those things don’t come along too often. …Long has taken his vision in a more robust direction by harnessing a full rhythm section, specifically the one that usually plays in Cotton Candy Cookies and Cream. Despite some sound issues and chemistry kinks to iron out, the trio’s debut glimpse (Feb. 10, Peacock Room) showed that there’s much to be excited about. Long’s idea of the blues is still psychotic, it’s just powered by a brawnier rock & roll engine. And from the sick slide-guitar action on display, it’s clear that he’s still gripped by the hex and remains one of the most electric performers around. Stay tuned for more."
"I recently told you about the hex-trembling Saint Sibian and the Nutrajet-setting Hot Mouth. Now meet Magick Finger. Billed alongside Hot Mouth (Feb. 27, Peacock Room) and incidentally forming the most lecherous-sounding lineup ever, Magick Finger’s roster is essentially Fantasie minus Jen Hathaway." — Bao Le-Huu
