"West Coast Performer Mag Review"

Four players and one mean visual artist strong, The Aimless Never Miss closed the night with a spot-on demonstration of multi-media evocativeness. With deep roots in Sonoma County, as well as in brooding atmospheric brilliance, the band�s turbulent yet powerfully cohesive harmonies and shimmering psychedelic interplay was skillfully enhanced by the contributions of fifth member, Luke Judd, and his live mixing and manipulating of video footage. Images ranged from gripping to playful, introspective to apocalyptic, all brimming with tangible feeling. The vocals of guitarist Jon Latimer and keyboardist Rosie Steffy glided off one another as the world crumbled behind them. In addition to increasing the emotional resonance of their music, Judd�s visuals also made the musicians onstage seem like one unit rather than four individual players. This undeniable cohesiveness combined with a bold approach to instrumentation and sense of innovation make The Aimless Never Miss a triple threat. With two EPs out now and a full length on the way, The Aimless is a band ready to take it to the next level. If they can secure an opening slot on a large national tour and get some much-deserved visibility, they�ll be set." -Review by Katherine Hoffert

"Kronic Review"

"The Bright Side" is a feast of elegant plots, a disc that has its best weapon in being transversal: alternative and pop are chasing each other on a slightly expanded rock background. The voice-guitar-drums triangles of "Point of Playing" hit continuosly the target while the fragile ballad "The Bright Side" is filled with needed adrenaline charges. Five tracks that slide nicely into your player, demonstrating the capabilities of a band that caresses with decision every sonic shade. With an album in preparation for this year you better watch these guys out. "

"A Conversation With an Apocalyptic Messenger"

By Matt Crawford (Jan 31, 2008 )
After coalescing in Sonoma County's small and incestuous rock scene, The Aimless Never Miss packed their bags to try their luck in San Francisco. About two years and two EPs later, TANM is gigging with a psychedelic light show that matches their spacious guitar and mood-driven tunes. The band is working on their debut LP between gigs at various venues around the Bay Area. They perform on February 12th, opening for Raised by Robots at Cafe Du Nord. Jonny Latimer (guitar/vocals) spoke during a phone interview with SF Station from his SOMA practice space.

"It's the sort of music that makes it impossible to sulk...The Aimless Never Miss create a giddy atmosphere with soaring vocals, densely layered guitars, bass, and keyboards. It's the sort of music that makes it impossible to sulk as your muscles twitch involuntarily into something resembling dancing."


"Wenn sie Doch Fliegen Konnteu"

"The aimless never miss / Suburban seas Ich wei� wie ich mir die n�ste Autofahrt �Land recht angenehm gestalten k�e. Oh, If They Could Fly. Vier Jungs, ein M�hen. San Francisco/Oakland, California, United States. Das wars. Auf ihrer MySpace-Seite erf�t man rein gar nichts �he aimless never miss . So funktioniert dann wohl Mundpropaganda."

translated from german to french, then from french to english:

"I know that as I it next voyage of car on the country could rather agreeably organize me - with of The aimless measuring more never and his EP "of Oh, If They Could Fly". Four Jungs, a girl. San Francisco/Oakland, California, United States. On his MySpace-Seite, one learns on from The aimless measured nothing purely more never. That war' S. Thus, the propaganda of mouth functions then probably."

"Review: The New Centuries, Tartufi, The Aimless Never Miss, Silian Rail @ The Starry Plough - July 25, 2008"

...Sandwiched between the duos were The Aimless Never Miss. If you’d caught the ANM earlier this year, you’re probably familiar with the wall-of-sound established by a five-piece band. Well, ANM are a bit more stripped down these days - Kuhn remained on stage for drumming duties while only guitarist/vocalist Jonny Latimer and bassist Andrew Macy joined him. Latimer and Macy tried to get the crowd ready with a handclap ukulele sing-along. It was a worthy effort, though not everyone was an active participant. The rest of the ukulele-free set was heavy on material from the band’s upcoming album, and the thinned-out lineup was an intriguing way to showcase it. While the five-piece lineup was a force to be reckoned with, the trio is free of distraction with an emphasis kept where it belongs - on the songs. In one impressive moment of the band’s musicianship, Latimer and Kuhn switched instruments mid-song, proving that perhaps the trio can carry all the weight...


"Praise for "oh, if they could fly" EP"

"Seriously worthy of a good, long listen is 'Oh, if they could fly', the debut EP from The Aimless Never Miss. The unsigned quintet, origionally from sonoma county and now based in San Francisco and Oakland, makes an epic indie racket dusted with the dark, dreamy drone of My Bloody Valentine..."
