Sprightly Moans / Press

“How on EARTH am I going to keep a review on a three song EP to a reasonable length if you people are going to put a track as amazing as THIS on your discs?”

“Sprightly Moans manages to surpass my emotional expectations with unique lyrical topics, often bordering on beautiful poetry (and sometimes surpassing the borderline) and a fairly interesting manner of expressing these thematic concepts musically under the guise of lo-fi garage rock.”

“When a band can actually make the tiny hairs on your neck stand up, it is fairly certain to say that they have delivered.”

“Not since I first heard Bradley Hathaway perform at Tomfest, have I heard such a unique mix of passion and poetic lyricism.”

“...I Wanna Be Afraid, which is a true masterpiece, we're really talking about a track of rare preciousness with a very special item on a guitar. Very emotional, a text that makes inroads into any heart.”

“The lyrics are honest, the vocalists clearly states that ‘nothing good can come of this.’”

“Hailing from Austin, TX, Sprightly Moans has carved out a unique sound scape in the Lone Star State. Fronted by Dave Wirth and saddled with Jeff Olson, this two man show packs a massive punch. Not quite your Black Keys duo, though the amount of sonic space that is filled with two musicians is remarkable. Let me say this, the music of Sprightly Moans will not be everyone’s cup of tea. For those who drink the elixir will be pleased that they let them into their ear drums.”

“Gli Sprightly Moans sono una band interessante non si può dire altrimenti.”

“Sprightly Moans play music for beer drinking, high-fiving, and billiard disputes, capturing the raucous spirit of a bar at last call, with rhythms that roll with tumbleweed abandon and riffs that can punch holes through sheet metal.”

“For fans of garage rock and similar lo-fi, underground artists; [Sprightly Moans] will no doubt be appealing. But, indeed, this will never find it’s way to radio with a sound like this; unless the band hijacked a radio station and started broadcasting themselves, and I suppose that would be possible with these punk rock, nihilistic tendencies.”
