Early love for The Longwalls’ “Gold Standard”

Two of our favorite Boston blogs—Redline Roots and Visions of the Unexcused—have offered some kind words on the new Longwalls record, Gold Standard.

Redline Roots writes, “Gold Standard further presents the band as a strong force that produces some catchy songs with a bit of a punk attitude and grit.”

Visions of the Unexcused praised the record calling it, “a near perfect tome of Americana-infused fuzz pop.

Thank you kindly!

Kind words from Bishop & Rook on Kurt von Stetten’s latest, “Animals”

The fine folks at Bishop & Rook have written a really nice review of Kurt von Stetten’s latest release, “Animals.” They write, “Perhaps all of these records are annual invitations into a complex mind of a musical intellect, a mind full of radical ideas of a broader picture too ambiguous for a casual listener to understand. But discernible and eloquent nonetheless.” When we think KvS, we think discernible and eloquent. Thanks for the kind words!

Meanwhile in Canada….

Love is growing for the Kurt von Stetten / Bonnie Trash collaboration! Their first single, Edith, was song of the day on New Lease and featured on Quick Before it Melts. Meanwhile, the fine folks at Grayowl Point wrote, “Edith is rough, loud, and full of energy, and should be a welcome treat to anyone who is looking for something with a little more passion.” Nice. Stream below, download over on Bandcamp. And look out for the release of their collaborative EP, Lynden Snakes, in early in 2014.
