The Lower 48 // Crushed Out // Bruiser Queen

The Lower 48

"The band's newest release rubs the indie-rock stamp off its collective wrist to make room for enough genres to cover its entire forearm. The rough-and-tumbling, country-born "Threw It Away" leads right into the Spoon-esque "Jack in the Pulpit." A song later, with "Transition 1," the Lower 48 rides a wave of fuzzed-out surf rock. The band does in three consecutive songs what some struggle to do in three albums' time." -Willamette Week

Crushed Out

"Sonically, fuzz, chorus, tremolo and reverbed-out handclaps make this Bo Diddley-esque song swing, tremble and explode just right." - Rolling Stone
