“Once a group with Ramones-inspired stage names — Nikki, Jessi and Kelley Darlin — that liked to throw down covers of Carter family songs, the Darlins has evolved into something less novel but equally engaging.” ~Timothy Finn, Ink.
The Vinyl District recently premiered The Kickback’s new track ‘When I Die’. Here’s what their vocalist Billy Yost had to say about the track:
"‘When I Die’ is a song about being so terrified of death that your only alternative is to micromanage the hell out of it. Unable to learn or grow from the experience, you assume that you’ll have the benefit of coming back from the afterlife and rubbing it in the faces of all those who slighted you during your time on earth.” —Billy Yost, guitar/vocals

"Like the lady says, she’s a band unto herself. Molly Gene plays slide guitar and foot-pedal drums, all while singing her guts out. Her songs are a barn-burning blend of stomping blues and earthy folk, and although spiced with occasional dashes of harmonica and tambourine, the heavy lifting is done by the pummeling guitar thrash and warbling, shaky-but-expressive vocals." ~PopMatters.com
"Lonesome Wyatt must have found a treasure trove of old children’s records because he recently embraces a particular aesthetic."~steampunkchronicle.com
