Review by John Noyd
October 2012

Hyperbolic schmaltz trimmed in punk-pop pow and shouted from the rooftop vocals, the home-studio, self-produced, “Lightning,” flashes athletic treasures from intrepid Brooklynites wielding an almost eerie ability to get to the point. Raw, muscular pep-rally punch chews enthusiastically on funky hip-hop blocks, hook-filled indie-rock and gleeful collegiate moxie as the duo concentrate on succinct synths, robust percussion and restless messages delivering unabashed crashes and colliding calliope mash-ups in an exhaustively polished mosh-pit road-trip from head to heart and back again. Talented battlers, Matt and Kim’s blunt stunts come subtly accompanied by shiny sonic details; calculated grooves, candied candor and dynamic dazzle contribute to the disc’s compact dashes, bubbly rumbles and sequined sequences. The pair plays Milwaukee’s Rave November 8th along with fellow left-field rocker Oberhofer
