Keisha Listening on a sweaty humid day from outside the Garrison in Toronto because I forgot my ID with these two playing Singing through the open garage door was still one of my favourite shows ever. That's saying something. Favorite track: Singing.

“the ghost of a young Walkmen frontman tackling a head-banging proclamation of internal struggle and motivation” – PORTALS

“bold, tastefully fuzzy garage-rock” – SPIN

“[The Halls of Wickwire] sounds like it was made in a basement but the basement is worth two million dollars. A gorgeous knock-out rock-out” – NOISEY

“The Halls of Wickwire is affecting and hypnotic, big without sounding slick and easily the best thing the band have produced to date” – EXCLAIM!

“They’ve got it all: better, bigger riffs than most, and a look that screams… I love rock & roll too much” – CHARTATTACK

“[Cousins] washes over you with a sound rich with texture and reverb ~ buzzing with garage-rock energy and layered with a California fuzz so warm that if you just rolled down the window, you could almost taste the salty air” – CBC RADIO3

“10 songs of pure high-powered, joyful punk fun” – INDIE88

“The Halls of Wickwire — its first for relentlessly on-point Toronto indie label Hand Drawn Dracula — [Cousins] has pulled off a studio recording that comes remarkably close to duplicating the entire might, meat and melody of a Cousins gig for the benefit of your headphones and your living-room system” – THE STAR
