"Dive bars, dirt roads, gun racks: Songs by Cary Ann Hearst don't shy away from much. It's no coincidence that the South Carolina singer-songwriter named her dog after Townes Van Zandt — her sound owes a lot to the outlaw country tradition Van Zandt helped define".

"Feels Like We're Gonna Win is an album with no concessions to traditional song-based forms. There's a willingness to use an odd mix of styles to create diverting music. Feels Like We're Gonna Win features the wildly imaginative streak that made Hamilton's first solo efforts so exciting. With top-notch colleagues, the absence of fancy gear and high budgets don't impair him in the least. Hamilton's fine-tuned process is something special"

Michael Trent is both prolific and well revised. He currently functions as the front man and primary songwriter for the NYC rock band The Films. He bears the pop sensibility of the 60's British invasion, the sardonic wit of Elvis Costello, emotional poigniancy of Elliot Smith, and the Townes Van Zant- like turn of phrase. His lyrics are clever and biting, but can, in very few words, shatter the listeners heart .

"The album flows nicely, gaining careful momentum along the way, from the more spare and airy songs in the first half into the more dynamic, full-band style that rocks and bounces with a louder style...If the well-textured, finely-executed band treatment of Carson's new album resembles the musical vibes of Shrimp's inner circle, great things should be expected from the label in the near future.
