Reflecting on many of their earlier influences such as Mudhoney, the Pixies, and Sonic Youth, the members of Garland Buckeye put together a feverish album of compelling lyrical expression, intense guitar work, and passionate rhythms. This album is all about angst-ridden, emotionally charged, excitingly fulfilling rock & roll. More Seas Than Before rambles from track to track with heavy-hitting percussion, fiery basslines, and distortion-laden, blazing guitar chords filled with crunch and bite. A delightful record for avid fans who wish to reminisce on the grunge period while digesting some fresh new music at the same time, More Seas Than Before is a fine display of grunge fever in an age of indie music when records like these are hard to come by. Garland Buckeye is a heavy rock-laden force to be reckoned with, a youthful, exuberant, and brash band proudly wearing honest intensity and passionate flair within its songs.
