BOYS (MISSOULA)
“Moody fuzzed-out guitars and deceptively simple arrangements sound as if they were pulled from an AM radio during a late night try at coitus.” – Missoula Independent



A Haircut (MADISON)
“In the band A Haircut, Lutz yelps over fat, fuzzy guitar tones and Trester’s simple drum patterns. Titles on their eight-song demo include “Lizard Skin” and “A Native Scalping.” Before forming A Haircut, Lutz played in a Milwaukee folk duo called Audrea, which once covered Misfits’ “Last Caress,” singing about a baby’s death over cheerful tambourine and harmonica. Trester’s drum kit includes parts salvaged from the trash.” – Scott Gordon, The Daily Page



Soul Low (MADISON/MILWAUKEE)
“Soul Low is a three piece Indie/Rock band made up of Sam Gehrke, Jake Balistrieri & Charlie Celenaza. Based out of Milwaukee, the group seemed to come to a complete halt last year when Gehrke took of for school. But after a year of little activity Soul Low are making an exciting comeback with a slew of recent shows, new songs, & eleven day tour to the east coast.” – Mouse Corn, FunTV



Dakotas (MADISON)
“Dakotas represented the first Madison band of brothers (literally, two of the members are brothers) to take the stage, and they played a blaring set of American rock highly reminiscent of The Strokes circa Room on Fire.” – Jaime Brackeen, MadisonNightOut
