"Schmo Mechanics review"

"Carried by thoughtful lyrics and listenable, back-to-basics production, Schmo Mechanics fits right in with the Twin Cities’ populous canon of hip-hop records." - 89.3 The Current

"Track of the Day"

"Comprised of emcees Ghostmeat, Bev, and producer Es El, Glow Mechanics' new LP is a record you won't want to miss. With impressive production quality, Schmo Mechanics is eleven tracks of laid-back killer beats and skillful lyricism." - Radio K

"Schmo Mechanics review"

"Glow Mechanics, already one of the strongest acts I have ever had the pleasure of reviewing, has evolved in a way that feels natural and logical, as if they are becoming the group that they were always meant to be." - Funeral Sounds

"Schmo Mechanics review"

"...Schmo Mechanics, a vibrant collection featuring the rhymes of Ghostmeat and BEV, and the inventive beats of SomethingLegitimate." - City Pages

"Top 20 Hip Hop EP's of 2013"

"Schmo Mechanics followed up on the work begun earlier in the year with "Introducing...", a little masterpiece that passed mostly unnoticed. The Minnesota duo rap like its breathing, the stuff flows naturally, and the symbiosis between the two emcees is quite unbelievable." - Indie Rock Mag (France)


Still working on that hot first release.
