Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Soft Pack [Kemado, 2010]
Four more young white guys riding g-g-b-d down the fast, flat driveway to moving out of your parents' house ("Answer to Yourself," "More or Less"). ***

Strapped [Mexican Summer, 2012]
Out on their own, g-g-b-d survey the song-friendly precincts of the big wide indie-rock world and try a little of this and a little of that ("Saratoga," "Bound to Fall") **
