DESERTS have a lot going for them; a great label that lets them record whatever music they want, a pedigree of awesomeness and probably most importantly to herohill, a love for The Warriors. ” – HEROHILL

“It’s truly a collision of genres, but under their deft guidance, music springs out of the mess. It’s sonic urban decay, it’s messy infatuation, it’s spontaneous & unpredictable, & it’s a shit-load of fun” – quickbeforeitmelts

“Sebastien Grainger (DFA’79, Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains) and Josh Reichmann (ex-Tangiers, Jewish Legend) create greasy, industrial disco, drizzled with danceable beats and carried by Grainger’s soulful howl and Reichmann’s rock-and-roll jangle.” – The Star
