Album Notes
"Oh my god. This is so unlike...Anything. There’s elements of lots of things here: Southern rock, indie rock, punk... There are moments where I hear snatches of something familiar... But every time I feel comfortable, the tune takes a right turn and leaves me behind, struggling to catch up...These guys have rocked me to my core, in a way few band submissions ever do. Truly." - Berkeley Place

"The people left inside could even hear the buzzing of the amplifers left on. You could hear the exhalation from a drag on a neighboring audience member's cigarette. From outside, you could hear the Java punks' intermittent oblivious cacophony, alternately intruding and retreating as the door opened and closed. And you could hear everything great about the band -- songwriting, good ideas, good voice. Taste. Promise. Someone, sometime had switched off the lights during the performance, and in the dark, you could see it, in the quiet, you could hear it: the excitement of seeing a band in its infancy, knowing that all it will take is time." - Emily Robinson -- City of Thousands Blog

"When the Royal Bangs played their first show back from hiatus in June, the biggest surprise wasn't that the band was already back in top form or armed with new material, but that the opening act Diacon-Panthers damn near stole their thunder. Themselves reconvening after an extended break, the young band captured the fickle attentions of a packed Pilot Light with alarming ease, tearing through a set of earnest, Southern-tinged rock, exhilarating in its edgy familiarity and presided over by Natan Diacon-Furtado's distinctive, sensitive caterwauls." - Nick Huinker -- Knoxville Voice

"Make It Feel Better is a casual recording, if not exactly lo-fi. The band plays a poppy, post-punk art rock with a distinctly Southern vibe--the guitar riffs are sharp and jittery, and Diacon-Furtado's vocals are high-pitched and arch, but Jeremy Given's Fender Rhodes electric piano offers a hum of classic-rock atmosphere, and his older brother adds occasional lap steel for a hint of twang. "Tennessee Dancing Nights," one of the album's standout tracks, updates the hard-edged folk rock of the mid-'60s, and "Saint Anthony" churns into a long, loose jam session that sounds inspired by Dixie Dirt, a band that might be Diacon-Panthers most immediate local precedent." - Matthew Everett -- Metro Pulse
