No Ripcord

At its best, it stands as a testament to the unparalleled songwriting of Cooley and Hood and as a reminder of just how special this band can be.


It's a more dynamic record than The Big To-Do, recalling the ramshackle vibe of their first two albums.


With Hood’s songwriting remaining this solid and the band comfortably settling into a great groove, Go-Go Boots could have been four years in the waiting and still would not have disappointed.

Consequence of Sound

Throughout the 14 songs on the record, it’s clear there’s a pack of mysterious, back-stabbing ne’er-do-wells breathing this effort to life; The flip side to this, of course, is that there’s also a lack of diversity and subtlety.
