''Looming' is a blend of hard and heavy electronica, stirred in with all manner of riffage. Just imagine Daft Punk with plenty more guitar' - 3/5
'A sonic blast of twin guitars interlocked in a clashing competition of dissonant riffing through a relentless 'Mo Tucker' pounding Groove'
Derry swear words, collective penile length and who would win between a monkey and a bear with knives. Oh, and there's a bit about music too...
Negative Pegasus' second single from their upcoming debut album 'Looming gets its first exposure through The 405
'Sullivan and Gold[s] songwriting quality blows everyone away on what is essentially their first gig.'
'It's hard sometimes when you review so much to stay excited when you see a handful of genres and other band names on a press release, you become jaded pretty fast; thankfully Brighton trio Negative Pegasus cut through any and all crap with this fantastic single release of ballsy psych' - 10/13
'[LaFaro] unleash a troika of songs that few local bands have it in their arsenal to match. ‘The Ballad of Burnt Dave’, ‘Sucking Diesel’ and ‘Tupenny Nudger’ are delivered with the band’s typical acerbic abandon ensuring that a set which had threatened to veer of course remains a triumph.'

Negative Pegasus' 'Floating Omen' on Artrocker Radio
'Some art demands that you slow your brain down before you take it in, and though I don’t like doing what I am told, at all or ever, I will do it for 'Floating Omen'.'
'The drummer’s relentless beat led the way as acid visuals flowed upwards, and the bass-less guitarists followed her lead.'
LaFaro to support We Were Promised Jetpacks at the German festival this Summer. Mach Show!
'A mix of droning, grinding loops with wild, sheets of guitar feedback to create a malevolent stew of hard-psyche and woozy, drone-garage.'
'Industrial guitar squeals and some pained banshee howls coating cyclic, juddering grooves, the sound of rock n roll locked into an eternal 8 bar loop while the world outside collapses'
'Negative Pegasus' sound is a world away from their sunny, seaside home in Southern England... consisting of sheets of guitar feedback floating above primal, pounding drums.'
'The band are reportedly influenced by "the consciousness expanding New York repetition-rock of Oneida, the free-time whirl of Sightings, the shamanistic stomp of Knyfe Hyts and the joint-snapping mathematics of KILLL and Zu".'
'Consciousness expanding, hard-psych three-piece from Brighton, England. For fans of Oneida, Ex Models and Can.'

LaFaro Support No Spill Blood on July 5th Upstairs Whelan's, Dublin
'A sensitive piano ballad full of yearning...like a smoothed-out Tom Waits song'
'Our Krypton Son are releasing a second single from their debut album and my, what a single it is.'
'‘Plutonium’...is a soft piano ballad that drifts between a hushed Jeff Tweedy-style delivery and a growly Dennis Wilson-esque ode, complete with warped ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’ style studio effects. It’s short and sweet but delivered perfectly.'
Our Krypton Son's latest single 'Plutonium' released today
'Blessed with a thundering, throbbing, heavy duty sound, typified by breakneck rhythms, clattering percussion and snarling vocals, Black, Magee, LaFaro and Lynn easily charm the pants off the Whelan’s massive, some of whom are too entranced by the racket to headbang along.'
'We are presented with an intimate, acoustic set. Chris McConaghy has a quiet and unassuming...his understated voice highlighting the melancholic nature of his songs.'
We're all pretty chuffed that the Association of Independent Music [AIM] have chosen Smalltown America to feature as their 'Label Focus' in their May newsletter.

'Plutonium' Limited Edition 7" Coloured Vinyls Arrive And Stuart Bailie Gives It Praise On BBC Radio Ulster's Late Show.
"Our Krypton Son have created a masterpiece. His new single 'Plutonium' depicts a delicate, almost otherwordly song that echoes dreams of a longed-for love - "Now that I met you from your kiss, the world I know is nothing but a lie."
"There isn't a central concept lyrically on the album - memory, time, love, death, work, jealousy - the usual shit really." - Chris
"A more introspective and bare form than previous single 'Catalonian Love Song', here he calls to mind the best of Blur’s sparse 'Out Of Time Eels' more poignant moments. Like those acts OKS cannot but help his pop instincts and this is a a well-crafted, fully realised song."
'Negative Pegasus whip up a howling, churning guitar assault with flailing shirts and limbs' - The Source Magazine

LaFaro talk about their upcoming appearance at the first ever Camden Crawl Dublin, their longing to play on The Muppet Show and how riffs rock the ivories.
'It's piano and vocal style calling to mind Suede's "By the Sea", with a vocal style that seems to sit somewhere in the murky water between E from Eels and Damon Albarn.'
'The machine beats and robo-bass juxtaposing nicely with a real human quality to the sparkly synth work.'
'I can say with complete honesty that I have been glued to the screen for most of the day. A second instalment of Weather Underground would be warmly accepted.'
