"State Bird"

“Through the rest of Holy Spirits, the band reveals the three keys to its success: complementary, cooperative and consistent music. Whether the instrumentation is minimal or climactic, the music retains its pop accessibility in form and structure.” – Ink

“They’ve got a touch of that way back sound – a little 60s pop here, a little 70s reverb, hazy psychedelia there.” – Obsessive Compulsive Music Disorder

“Compared with Mostly Ghostly (State Bird’s 2008 release), the band now has a big sound where Coby and Jared wield fuzz and feedback masterfully.”- Brooklyn Rocks

“‘Mostly Ghostly’ presents glorious, full-bodied tracks that swell with a plethora of instrumentation and gospel-like choruses. ” –

“Sounding like an approximation of Neutral Milk Hotel bumping into Modest Mouse at one of Wilco’s more rural-inflected concerts, State Bird enlists a cadre of fine musicians to add flourishes of brass or percussion, subtle or otherwise, that give its sound a sophisticated and full body.” – Cleveland Free Times

“lush beyond belief…an absolute gem.” – Side One Track One

“the most impressive aspect of the album are in fact Hartzler and Riblet’s vocals. They are honest, constantly harmonizing, and ever changing in presentation. A rarity in music today and a delight for the listener.” – Transform Online

“It’s difficult not to get up off the couch and start marching right alongside them.”- Opuszine - Press
