For a band that, for the most part, had nothing more than a free album and an EP out, I’ve jumped on these guys’ bandwagon, moved to the front row and bought the fucking t-shirt. I’ve called them your new favorite band, one of the brightest up and coming spots in this genre, and even insinuated that Two Cow might wanna watch their back when it comes to these kids. High praise, no doubt but about 3 months ago, when I got my copy of Simple Machines I immediately knew that the rain of praise from the 9b camp wasn’t only high, it was wholly accurate.

For months I’ve been chomping at the bit to tell y’all about this album and how incredibly awesome it is and now that it’s out….I’m at a loss. What do I say that I haven’t already repeated ad nauseum on twitter and facebook? I mean, how many times can I say that if you’re a fan of Two Cow Garage you absolutely have to get this cd?

That raw edge that Dance To Forget and Truckstop Roses (both are available for free here and here) had has definitely been dialed down a little with Simple Machines, but that’s more a result of studio production than a softening band. Everything else about Simple Machines is spot-fucking-on. Including the incredibly well timed cameos of other 9b faves such as Two Cow’s Micah, Drag The River’s Snodgrass and Lizzie Huffman’s Lizzie.

So that’s it. I ain’t got nothing else to say. If you like that punky, rocky, Southerny rock and roll thing, then meet Arliss Nancy, they’re one of your new favorite bands. Simple Machines is an album I’ll talk about again come year end lists. Simple Machines is an album I’ll still be listening to a year from now. Simple Machines is Essential Listening. - ninebullets.net


Owing their sound to the dual influences of Americana roots rock and gritty, bearded punk, Arliss Nancy formed in 2007 in Fort Collins, Colorado. From the outset, singer-songwriter Cory Call seemed to excel at juxtaposing the simplicity of the classic American blue-collar songwriter with the subtlety and nuance of a well-read, withdrawn poet. Now, with nearly 5 years, 2 full length albums and 2 EPs under their belt, that dichotomy is as persistent as ever with the introduction of bassist Kyle Oppold as half the songwriting force behind Arliss Nancy's Suburban Home Records debut, Simple Machines. The record will be immediately palatable to fans of alt-country mainstays like Lucero and Two Cow Garage, but the discerning ear will hear hints of a wide array of influences from the dingy gravel of Midwestern pop punk to the whimsical balladry of Bruce Springsteen. Arliss Nancy's sound is a triumph of contrasts, and they aim to prove it with Simple Machines. - Fest 11
