Eli Morse : so filthy

Guilherme Menezes : MUitooooo Lokoooooooo !!!

Panic the Kid : I'm just checking out these guys for the first time. I'm really digging the variety of sounds here. Infectious melodies and earworm qualities aside, these dudes are badass musicians. The brassy, throaty cadences of a high school marching band are the backbone of these songs, but I especically love the heavy spin on it with the drummer's attitude and power, it definitely supports the rest of the ensemble well. I hear a lot of jazz thrown in on the solo sections of these songs. The passages are hectic and make the songs feel even better-structured after the fact. I also really love the megaphone vocals; it also harkens back to that high-school pep rally feeling. The whole thing gives off this wild, urban, robust sound that I didn't know I needed in my life. I hate sounding like a douchey music critic, but damn, I just needed to get those thoughts written down because I've not grown to like such an eclectic group this fast before. A-1 stuff.

pattomuso : Where was Lance.....I can hear him! ;)

ricardo martinez : El negro que agudea en el trombón se parece a Kenan de Kenan & Kell jajajaja

skyzefawlun : These guys remind me of Youngblood Brass Band, and that's a wonderful thing! Anyone who digs this and isn't familiar with YBB, check them out, they're legendary.

Alan Burns : No BS except for the saxophone

BenniM : When you play the baritone and you see all these trumpets and trombones being able to play so cool :,(


TheBlondebaby80 : the tuba player is amazing, (contra in drum corps) I used to play. all very talented. is the brass in key of G?

Luis Ortiz : Kinda funny, this guys are pack in that tiny room so tight that you can't see the drummer in the back doing a great job.
