“Tucson duo Golden Boots (Ryen Eggleston and Dimitri Manos) make appealing, low-fi indie rock that’s been baked in the Southwest sun. Their new album Liquid Ranch is out in April and this is the twangy new single that’s overflowing with ramshackle charm.”
“Staying true to their essence, Grampfather’s new album wavers between abrasive rockers and chill indie vibes. As such, the album, like their live shows, is sure to keep listeners on their toes.”
“Fans of Ween will find plenty to appreciate in this song, which incorporates bouncy, oddball pop with indie and psych rock. Catchy vocals and jangly guitar give the song a dreamy and druggy quality…”

All of which is written out in an intentionally honest light, with Toy’s heartfelt lyrics pairing well with dramatic string arrangements courtesy of Collin Dupree.
“Usie lays down dreamy vocals that bring to mind the slower works of Ween and even My Morning Jacket’s Jim James while also standing out as unique. What makes the song especially intriguing is the addition of fiddle by Louis Michot and pedal steel by Jonny Campos, both of rich add a deeper dimension to the sound and keep it close to its Louisiana roots.”
“Few songwriters can successfully contextualize large issues with the humor and humanity of Padilla. There are shadows of the warped sensibilities of Frank Zappa and George Clinton throughout his songs, a similar singular vibe: literally no-one else could have made this album.”
