“”You guys sound like Domestica-era Cursive meets the Argument-era Fugazi, with some Joy Division and Thursday thrown in there.”
-Lee Corey Oswald
Making music, where music need be heard.”
“Paying ample homage both to the 90s slacker rock anthems of Pavement, Weezer, and Built to Spill, and the brazen eccentricities of new wavers Talking Heads and XTC, Specters delivers hook-heavy power pop that takes an occasional turn for the tender.”
“[Candysound] write almost-instantly-hummable pop songs of understated beauty that suggest immersion in the Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle and some of those underrated Merge bands from the ’90s, like Butterglory. Candysound’s handle could lead you to expect twee OD, but thankfully they’re more about nutritious fruitiness than that teeth-rotting junk.” -Dave Segal, The Stranger (Seattle)
“Upon listening to their eponymous release, initially I thought Creech was good. Then with more listening Creech became really good. And now, I think Creech is great.” ~What’s Up! Magazine 2012
See you there!
