-from Davis, CA
-"[...] the band had a knack for showmanship, followed by the ability to sound clean and melodic without committing to one stylistic approach, wherein upholding measured arrangements that employ the members' expertise to the fullest." - SubMerge Magazine
"The band may as well earn a reputation as Davis' most mercurial bands for its brave leaping subgenre to another while still playing to an alternative scene." - SubMerge Magazine
"The band knows how to crank out a righteous and angry punk tune, as illustrated by 'Boredom Blues,' whose lyrics convey the inherent insecurity and restlessness that comes with boredom, and 'Day Wrecker,' which might be the strongest song on the album thanks to it's anthemic guitar work and infectious bass. All in all, Gravy Nation is a dynamite first LP that bolsters the local music scene and shows fantastic promise for the band." - KDRT 95.7FM
Edward Burch - Jeffrey Schmidt - Ryan Schwartz - Jonathan Gaiser
-from San Francisco, CA
-San Francisco's Miss March simply makes some fine indie rock. The rhythms, harmonies, and melodies of the track "Miles Away" have been stuck in my head for a few days now.
Ari Vais, Kevin Frank and Steve Mathews
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Campbell Apartment, named after a bar hidden inside New York's Grand Central Station, is the brain-child of Russian born singer-songwriter and oil painter Ari Vais. "...sounds like the Clash fronted by Jonathan Richman - the power of the music leavened by the wryness of the lyrics. Underlying that tension, however, is an emotional richness that repeated listenings - and you will listen repeatedly - reveal.
They walk an ever-shifting line between knowing detachment and painful vulnerability. The instant you ease into one mode, the tone or the tempo changes and you're whipsawed into the other. The album is like life in that way - unsettling turns and touching surprises, each when you least expect them."
-Anthony DeCurtis Rolling Stone
