"I feel like I'm clear of it now, and the songs have kind of captured that bad time and playing them is turning out to be cathartic."

Articles and Reviews

"National guitar, the funkiest of the resonator family, buzzes and growls beneath Parr’s singing while Dave Hundreiser’s mouth harp screams like a wounded animal, alternately running and charging. Mikkel Beckmen’s extraordinary percussion on washboard and other improvised items urges the music forward. Listening to the three together feels like running a footrace with a freight train."
- Philadelphia City Paper

"It could only come from Duluth. Iron-hard banjo, guitar, washboard, footstomp and harmonica, plus voice – American roots hoicked out of the ground but not hosed down." - The Independent
