“Local roots music warriors Yankee Holler have their own take on Americana. They're mainstays at area cafes and bars and now have a fine full-length CD called "Calm Can Kill."”
“Really, this is good old Southern rock played by good old Yankee boys; the only real difference between the two is a long cold winter. Yankee Holler recalls the days when music was the most important thing, and for them (and many of us), it still is.”
“...the album kicks off strongly with "Sugar Don't Stop." It has a pretty thick-sounding snare drum and retro wah-wah guitar, and an earnest vocal delivery. The guitar work here has a fiery Southern rock sound, which sadly isn't heard much anymore. The clever barroom ode "Bourbon in Reverse" takes the day-after damage control point of view, wanting things back the way they were, while the relentless "Yellow Moon" recalls better days with a deadly backbeat. The dynamic, dramatic "Lucy Lee, The Devil & Me" is a sure highlight, as is the hard-hitting "Full-Grown Woman" and "Gravity," which tones it down somewhat with a gentle acoustic guitar and harmonica. "Fortune & Glory" brings it home, and if they keep it up, they may just get one of those, if not both.”
“In my humble opinion, the record kills, even the relatively calm songs. Frankly there's no filler that I can hear. It is one of the best releases so far during 2015. Very well done!”
