PRIZE COUNTRY: Lottery of Recognition: CD

Well, it is nice to see the influences on the press sheet be spot-on for a change. It mentions Drive Like Jehu, Failure, Barkmarket, and Jesus Lizard—and that is exactly what you get here. I would also add in some Avail and Fugazi influences in the vocal department. Being that they are from Portland, OR, I might also throw in a comparison to locals Thirty3, who put out a pretty damn good full length a few years back. Fans of ‘90s Dischord or Touch And Go can’t go wrong with this disc. Also highly recommended for the Hot Water Music/Leatherface/No Idea crowd; if you love those gruff vocals, this is for you.
