Word on the street
From Lee Zimmerman's "Indie Spotlight" column, Goldmine Magazine:
"One can think that they’ve heard every band that’s worthy of praise and then suddenly, unexpectedly, along comes an outfit so remarkable, it’s hard to believe they’ve been below the radar and out of sight. ... It’s music so obviously infectious, so singularly spectacular that it simply rings with recognition."
A write-up from Commonstate's Nick Pipitone:
"On Starts at Dusk it’s all there, the melodies, the beauty in simplicity, the pop motifs, and the occasional R&B croon--a product of years of playing, getting it right."
From the Evan Rytlewski article in Shepherd Express:
"Starts At Dusk is a considerably peppier, livelier record than the woodsy Americana of the group’s previous work, a bright pop record in the tradition of Big Star’s Third and R.E.M.’s late-’80s LPs, filtered through the sensibilities of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen’s heartland rock."
