Album Notes
“The Loft Tapes shows up at a solid No. 5 position on KRFC’s top 30 playlist this week. The group’s laid-back groove captures a sound that is at once modern and reminiscent of the good old days of Motown recordings.” CMJ

“Here is Colorado’s answer to the Black Keys.” Denver Post – Reverb

“Holy Shit!” The Loft Tapes review, Marquee Magazine

“The band sounds laid back and super groovy, like they’re feeling the music rather than merely playing it. Not only did the dudes nail it here, but some of their versions rival the originals.” Dave Herrera, Westword

“This recording, which was done over the course of a week last January in Berthoud, Colorado at an old Masonic Temple, shows a level of maturity and elegance that is simply arresting.” MusicMarauders

“It’s the old-south hymnal hospitality and good-gracious gospel stylings of lead vocalist and bassist Jonathan Meadows that steal the show on (The Loft Tapes)” Listen Up Denver

“Lake Tahoe Action once compared vocalist Jonathan Meadows to Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. Make that Stevie Wonder with a ballcap and a bushy red beard.” Tahoe Daily Tribune
