    This Seattle three-piece led by the Brothers Keim has an appealingly desperate and unpretty way with a rock song, churning out Zeppelinesque stompers ("Two Times"), urgent new wave pleas ("Don't Bother Me"), and tasty garage rock ("Magoo"). The vocals reflect real passion--no emo posturing here--and Garnet Keim's guitars are chimey and grimy in equal measure, while Snow Keim's bass parts assert themselves charmingly, often providing the hook for a song. This promising debut will excite fans of old-school Detroit rock.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.49) - "[T]here's a vulnerability to frontman Garnet Keim's lyrics....Add their collection of fizzing riffs and a lolloping pace, and you're onto a winner."
