"Moonshine Hangover: Thicket"

"Mining that territory where bands like the Bottle Rockets and the Drive-By Truckers hang out, these guys are bellying up to the bar with them. The sound is raw and theres as much energy on this studio album as any live stuff youre likely to hear." --Village Records - Village Records


"A Shot of Twang. Hold the Glitz."

"A shot of twang, hold the glitz... Grits-and-gravy... Southern-fried... Formed out of reverence of and proclivity for a beat-up hardwood dance floor, a Saturday night and long sets of sweaty guitar riffs and gravelly harmonies. They're as tight as the Skoal in your jeans back pocket, forged after many nights where success is measured in broken guitar strings and the empties on the amps." -- The Oregonian - The Oregonian


"DBT Northwest?"

"Hard-rockin', twang-laden sincerity, smart songs and simpatico playing push Portlands' Moonshine Hangover past the alt-country also rans on the bands' sophomore disc, Thicket. An impeccable taste in collaborators ropes in the cream of the Portland crop: Marilee Hord's fiddle, Paul Brainards steel guitars, David Lipkind's harmonica and Lewi Longmires organ all adorn tracks here. And if the bands songwriting continues to improve along these lines, we'll soon have our own local Drive-By Trucking franchise." -- Willamette Week - Willamette Week


"Live Picks!"

"Some Alt-country acts just dont get it. They patronizingly parody the genres conventions insert self-conscious nods to anachronistic albums and don garish, gimmicky duds. On the other hand, the beer-drinkers and hell-raisers in Moonshine Hangover take their debt to the authentic outlaw country seriously. This Portland quartets turbo-twang barn-burners scorch the stage like a flaming tractor careening trough crops, slapping off any sissy ironic trucker hats within a cornfields radius. This gig marks the release of Moonshine Hangovers latest disc Thicket, which sounds surprisingly crisp given the scores of alcohol references its lyrics contain." -- Portland Mercury - The Portland Mercury


"Thicket: Moonshine Hangover"

"Moonshine Hangover power on with more twang-jacked Southern rock for the bold at heart. You'd never guess that this quartet was from as far North as Portland, but they seem to have Georgia on their mind and some blazing guitars to power the thought." -- Miles of Music - Miles of Music

Bio

The Portland, Oregon boys conjure the ghosts of fallen heroes such as Waylon Jennings, Toy Caldwell, Duane Allman and The Louvin Brothers and infuse those spirits into the body of an Urgent rock band. Garnering comparisons to contemporaries such as Drive-By Truckers, The Bottle Rockets, and The Gourds, the quintet delivers alternative country that kicks ass in the twentey-first century but hearkens back to 70's radio.
