    Review from My Old Kentucky Blog, June 23, 2011
    We're stoked to announce this indie, psyche-pop trio are releasing their 6-song EP this Friday, July 1st on Fountain Square (downtown Cincy) for the MPMF Indie Summer Series (w/ the Pomegranates).
    Chock full of nostalgic reverb and noir-ish, punkabilly overtones, these good-time, surf-pop rockers with a baroque panache are a hard act to corral into any specific genre. Michael Oliva's lounge-y, Morrisey-esque vocals evoke a hand-holding 1950's stroll down memory lane, that is until he starts unrepentant yowling like Lux Interior.
    Midwest Coast veers from minor, melancholic chords that still possess a teasing whimsy about them, such as the tunes So Far So Good and Nothing Important Happened Today to raucous, dynamic rockers like Firehawk and Midwest Coast. There's the dreamier, laid-back 2010, a perfect example of Oliva's intelligent flair for storied songwriting ala a noise-pop Randy Newman, while the party-time You Ought To is a shimmering, snarling exercise in pure pop entertainment.
