FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM— “This is a fairly cerebral band made up of some outstanding musicians. We told you about them last year, and they have done nothing but improve every time I’ve seen them since.”
FORT WORTH WEEKLY—”…a gritty, rocking, psychedelic quintet…Its majesty lies in the psychedelic spaciousness and languorous detail that Beatty and company superbly establish.”
ON TOUR MONTHLY—”Un Chien features a discernible nod to some of music past’s most prolific (albeit most overlooked) bands, and that nod goes a long way. “Stars/Streetlights,” could easily live as a B-Side on Daydream Nation, and no one, not even the most avid Sonic Youth fan, would be the wiser.”
