jonathan hooker This band fucking brings it heavy and comes correct. I listen to it at work and my productivity jumps 300%, easily. I'm almost to the point where I'm three-quarter assing my projects. If I keep this up, my manager says I can keep coming back next week!

The bass makes me want to play bass. And the drums shake my balls. Favorite track: Horses.

Chad Decent A lovely record. Whales seems to be catching up with their ambitions while still poking around new corners. This one has a great mixing of their dreamy and swirling aspects with incredible melodies. They also rock like all fuck.

ceb My favorite music takes me back to a certain time and memory. Swift-Tuttle brought back when I moved to Seattle in 1993, not because it reminded me of grunge or any style, but because of hanging with my friends, exploring a new city with so much possibility. Also, while excellent throughout, the drums and percussion in the later part of the track are especially amazing. Favorite track: Swift-Tuttle.
