The best kept secret in music


"Genre Benders"

"Smart, tight songs—songs that kick over the genre trashcans as they run rowdy down Pop Ave. A stew of post-hardcore, punk and dance atop sudden math rock on-a-dime changes. Don't jam an August Spies disc if you're looking for the average heartbreak fare. "New Catastrophe", the debut LP, finds a precise balance between technical chops and good energy, easing the jolt of sudden gear shifts."

--Marissa Demarco - Weekly Alibi

"New Catastrophe"

"The music on the debut full-length from this Duke City quartet has an urgency about it. These are definitely not pop songs, but the tunes still possess hooks over the course of 4-minutes plus. And as the band says: Everybody "sings."

The post-punk New Wave of opener "Pedaling Backwards" is dance rock with echoey vocals and chiming guitars. The guys rock out on the punky-dubby "Spades," while the futuristic funk of "Eye of the Liger" gets by on a dub/ska beat and angular guitar progressions. The post-hardcore closer "Came and Saw" could be interpreted as an anti-Bush, anti-war song."

--Paul Maldonado - Albuquerque Tribune


Still working on that hot first release.
