:: Burn Up and Shine reviews
WLUR (Washington & Lee radio blog) .. "Burn Up & Shine was produced by John Agnello, who's done work for The Hold Steady, which means I automatically endorse this record. Like Rilo Kiley before them, they make the guy-to-girl vocal switch seamlessly and effectively, providing a strikingly coherent album that interweaves a host of sounds and styles. Swirling indie pop with chiming guitars and upbeat melodies. Charming, really"
Here Comes the Flood .. "Burn Up & Shine is pretty near the top of this year's best indie releases"
The Devil Has the Best Tuna - "literate sun-kissed pop that's as finely crafted as a Shaker cabinet"
Kata Rokkar .. "strong and super sweet melodies"
Umbilical Chord.. "Long gone are the days where artists like the Beatles or the Eagles were able to combine meaningful lyrics and sing-a-long melodies. Gladshot, however, crafts songs rife with musicality and addictive choruses while embracing the art of songwriting"
The Frontloader .. (from Swapmeet Louie's 5 Most Played iPod Songs) 'Early Light' has a great chorus, and I found myself playing the song over and over again just to get to that payoff. It wasn't until I looked at the playcount did I realize that I listened to the song ten times in a row. That's over a half-hour of hitting 'rewind.' The rest of [Burn Up and Shine] is just as catchy, and I'm actually glad I had to leave or else I would have sat there for a much longer time, hitting 'rewind' to every song.
What to Wear During an Orange Alert .. "Debbie Andrews and Mike Blaxill make sugary pop music"
Mojophenia .. "One of New York's coolest bands ... you could take them home to your mum, she'd probably wanna adopt them"
Wonderful World of Unicycling Aardvarks .. "A fine blast of power-pop"
Music of the Moment .. "Perfect Pop!"
Metaphor .. "Gladshot gives me a happy tingling feeling inside..."
