"Big Quarters - Party Like A Young Commie (Review)"

Big Quarters are a model example of what the indie artist hustle and game plan should be in this day and age. Their versatility, adaptability, drive and attitude is not only what helps define their success, but is also defined in their music. What I mean by that is, Big Quarters make honest, personal, heartfelt, and relatable music. Ultimately, all of that is a natural reflection of who they are as people. - Kevin Beacham, Fifth Element - Fifth Element Online
